By Christ redeemed, in Christ restored

By Christ redeemed, in Christ restored,
We keep the memory adored,
And show the death of our dear Lord
    Until He come.
His body broken in our stead
Is seen in this memorial bread,
And so our feeble love is fed
    Until He come.
The drops of His dread agony,
His life-blood shed for us, we see;
The wine shall tell the mystery
    Until He come.
And thus that dark betrayal-night
With the last advent we unite,
By one blest chain of loving rite,
    Until He come.
Until the trump of God be heard,
Until the ancient graves be stirred,
And with the great commanding word
    The Lord shall come.
O blessed hope! with this elate;
Let not our heart be desolate,
But, strong in faith, in patience wait
    Until He come.

This song is so inspiring. Just take a minute to meditate on it, and you can just feel the presence of God's great love.....we would keep waiting in patience until He COMES.

We read this song at the Lord's table meeting this morning, and then sang it. It was a high point of the meeting. We had never sung it before.

This song really encourages me. Whenever I get into this hymn, it keeps reminding me of the Lord's coming. Therefore I will continue enjoying the Lord till He comes.
