While of These Emblems We Partake

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 174

1. While of these emblems we partake In Jesus’ name and for his sake, Let us remember and be sure Our hearts and hands are clean and pure.

2. For us the blood of Christ was shed; For us on Calvary’s cross he bled, And thus dispelled the awful gloom That else were this creation’s doom.

3. The law was broken; Jesus died That justice might be satisfied, That man might not remain a slave Of death, of hell, or of the grave,

4. But rise triumphant from the tomb, And in eternal splendor bloom, Freed from the pow’r of death and pain, With Christ, the Lord, to rule and reign.
