S.M.

We bless our Saviour's name,
 
Our sins are all forgiven;
 
To suffer once to earth He came:
 
He now is crowned in heaven.
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.” (Ephesians 1:7)
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.” (1 Peter 3:18)
“Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the works of thy hands.” (Hebrews 2:7)
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” (Hebrews 2:9)

Lord, let us ne'er forget
 
Thy rich, Thy precious love;
 
Our theme of joy and wonder here,
 
Our endless song above.
“Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.” (Genesis 40:23)
“As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.” (John 15:9)
“And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19)

Oh let Thy love constrain
 
Our souls to cleave to Thee!
 
And ever in our hearts remain
 
That word, Remember Me.
