Hymn 296A - According to Thy Gracious Word

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


According to Thy gracious word,

In meek humility,

This will I do, my dying Lord:

I will remember Thee.

Thy body, broken for my sake,

My bread from heav’n shall be;

Thy testamental cup I take,

And thus remember Thee.

Gethsemane can I forget?

Or there Thy conflict see,

Thy agony and bloody sweat,

And not remember Thee?

When to the cross I turn mine eyes

And rest on Calvary,

O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,

I must remember Thee.

Remember Thee and all Thy pains

And all Thy love to me;

Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,

Will I remember Thee.

And when these failing lips grow dumb

And mind and mem’ry flee,

When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,

Jesus, remember me!
