     23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.(KJV)

1. ‘Twas on that dark, that doleful night 
When powers of earth and hell arose 
Against the Son of God’s delight 
And friends betrayed Him to His foes. 

2. Before the mournful scene began, 
He took the bread and blessed and brake. 
What love through all His actions ran! 
What wondrous words of grace He spake! 

3. “This Is My body, broke for sin; 
Receive and eat the living food”; 
Then took the cup and blessed the wine: 
“‘Tis the new covenant in My blood.” 

4. “Do this,” He said, “till time shall end, 
In memory of your dying Friend. 
Meet at My table and record 
The love of your departed Lord.” 

5. Jesus, Thy feast we celebrate; 
We show Thy death, we sing Thy name, 
Till Thou return and we shall eat 
The marriage supper of the Lamb.
