    Verse 1
    The hour is come, the feast is nigh
    I give Myself to you
    Behold I give my blood to you
    Shed for your redemption.

    Verse 2
    Till my Father's kingdom above
    Before I drink again
    By then, no more shall tears be shed
    It shall be joy for aye.

    Verse 3
    This supper shall e'er continue
    Until His kingdom come
    All o'er the world shall many souls
    Eat this supper and drink.

    Verse 4
    God's blessings shall be poured from heav'n
    Upon all those who eat
    And from my Father's throne on high
    I'll prepare them a place.

    Verse 5
    But now, for the present I'll drink
    The bitter cup for you
    And for your sakes, I'll drink the cup
    Of sore anguish of death.

    Verse 6
    Ye cannot know my deep sorrow
    Nor yet, my glory see
    But thism continue ye to do
    And thus, remember me.
