When on Thy table, Lord, we gaze

Stanza 6:

"By feasting on this bread and cup

Thy death we now declare,"

1 Corinthians 11:26 says "... For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you declare the Lord's death until He comes."

footnote 1 - Or, proclaim, display. To take the Lord’s supper is not to remember the Lord’s death but to declare and display it. We remember the Lord Himself by declaring and displaying His death.

footnote 2 - ... By His first coming the Lord accomplished His death to carry out an all-inclusive redemption for the producing of the church... Hence, to declare the Lord’s death until He comes may imply the declaring of the existence of the church for the bringing in of the kingdom.

--------

To eat the bread and to drink the wine is to declare His death, declare His all-inclusive death that produced the church! To take the Lord's supper until He comes back is also to declare the existence of the church for the kingdom! Hallelujah!

The loaf portrays the bread of life. As heav’nly food to us,

Imparted by Thy mystic death

That we may share Thee thus.

This is so true! Amen!!!
