ACCORDING to Thy gracious Word,
    In meek humility,
This will I do, my dying Lord,
    I will remember Thee.
2  Thy body, broken for my sake,
    My bread from Heaven shall be;
The testamental cup I take,
    And thus remember Thee.
3  Gethsemane can I forget?
    Can I such conflict see,
Thine agony of blood and sweat,
    And not remember Thee?
4  When to the Cross I turn mine eyes,
    And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,
    I must remember Thee—
5  Remember Thee, and all Thy pains,
    And all Thy love to me;
Yes, while a breath, a pulse remains,
    Will I remember Thee.
6  And when these failing lips grow dumb,
    And mind and memory flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
    Jesus, remember me.
James Montgomery, 1771-1854
