2 Saved by that Body and that holy Blood,
With souls refreshed, we render thanks to God. 3 Salvation's giver, Christ, the only Son,
By His dear Cross and Blood the victory won.
Himself the Victim, and Himself the Priest.
Now gives His holy grace, His saints to aid.
And take the safeguard of salvation here.
To all believers life eternal yields;
Latin Hymn, 7th cent. Tr. John M, Neale
253 IN MEMORIAM 220.127.116.11
FREDERICK C. MAKAR
Kd=76)By Christ re-deemed, in Christ re-stored, We keep the mem-o - ry
2 His body, broken in our stead
4 And thus that dark betrayal night, Is here, in this memorial bread;
With the last Advent we unite-
The shame, the glory, by this rite,
Until He come. 3 His fearful drops of agony,
5 Until the trump of God be heard, His life-blood shed for us, we see:
Until the ancient graves be stirred, The wine shall tell the mystery,
And with the great commanding word, Until He come.
The Lord shall come.
Let not our hearts be desolate,
2 Bless Thou the truth, dear Lord, to me, to me,
Mary A. LATHBURY
3 Grant them the joy which brightens earthly sorrow;
Grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife,
DOROTHY F. BLOMFIELD
Thou dear - er far than earth - ly guest Vouch-safe Thy pres- ence here;
ho - ly Thou in - deed dost prove The mar-riage vow
257 REQUIESCAT 18.104.22.168.8.8
JOHN B. DYKES
the la- borer's task is o'er; Now the bat - tle day is
in Thy gracious keep - ing Leave we now Thy ser-vant sleep - ing.
2 There the tears of earth are dried;
There its hidden things are clear; There the work of life is tried
By a juster Judge than here. Father, in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping,
4 There no more the powers of hell
Can prevail to mar their peace; Christ the Lord shall guard them well,
He who died for their release. Father, in Thy gracious keeping Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
3 There the penitents, that turn
To the Cross their dying eyes,
At His feet in Paradise.
5 "Earth to earth, and dust to dust,”
Calmly now the words we say,
Till the resurrection-day.
