22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. 23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. 24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many. 25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God. 26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.(KJV)

1. The death of Jesus Christ, our Lord, 
We celebrate with one accord; 
It is our comfort in distress, 
Our heart’s sweet joy and happiness. 

2. He blotted out with His own blood 
The judgment that against us stood; 
He full atonement for us made, 
And all our debt He fully paid. 

3. That this is now and ever true 
He gives an earnest ever new: 
In this His holy Supper here 
We taste His love so sweet, so near. 

4. His Word proclaims, and we believe. 
That in this Supper we receive 
His very body, as He said, 
His very blood for sinners shed. 

5. A precious food is this indeed,– 
It never fails us in our need,– 
A heavenly manna for our soul, 
Until we safely reach our goal. 

6. Oh, blest is each believing guest 
Who in this promise finds His rest; 
For Jesus will in love abide 
With those who do in Him confide. 

7. The guest that comes with true intent 
To turn to God and to repent, 
To live for Christ to die to sin, 
Will thus a holy life begin. 

8. They who His Word do not believe, 
This food unworthily receive, 
Salvation here will never find,– 
May we this warning keep in mind! 

9. Help us sincerely to believe 
That we may worthily receive 
Thy Supper and in Thee find rest. 
Amen, he who believes is blest.
