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.
Acts 4:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 2:7,9
2
Lord, let us ne'er forget
 
Thy rich, Thy precious love;
 
Our theme of joy and wonder here,
 
Our endless song above.
Genesis 40:23; John 15:9; Ephesians 3:19; Revelation 1:5
3
Oh let Thy love constrain
 
Our souls to cleave to Thee!
 
And ever in our hearts remain
 
That word, Remember Me.
2 Corinthians 5:14; Acts 11:23; Genesis 40:14; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he come.” (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
