Lord, You are so dear and precious to our heart.
Glenfield Auckland City, AKL, New Zealand
Praise the Lord!! we remember Thee,
We thus partake of all Thou art;
As we enjoy Thyself in love,
We share Thee as Thy counterpart
The first line in stanza four: "Thou even art a lowly slave" corresponds with Philippians 2:6-7ー Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal with God a treasure to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming in the likeness of men.
How marvelous this is that He was willing to lay Himself aside, humble Himself and take the form of a slave, to serve us, to meet our every need, exceeding even all our desires, and to satisfy us continually.
Lord, how we praise You for who You are!
We are enjoying this hymn in Turkish ... a Zoom meeting with saints from Istanbul, Los Angelas and Hong Kong... HE meets all our need .. satisfying continually ...

You are so all-inclusive, how we Praise YOU!!

This hymn is one of the most profound hymns Witness Lee has written and very appropriate for the Lord’s table.
The first stanza begins with ‘Lord as we consider Thee’ the word consider has the Latin prefix ‘con’ or with. The root word ‘sider’ is a derivative
of the word ‘sidereal’ meaning heavenly bodies or stars. It is to think in stars or in a heavenly way. When we consider the Lord, we must do so in all His wonderful dimensions in the four gospels.
The second stanza begins with ‘Thou art the very God of truth. ’ This alludes to the gospel of John which presents Him as God.
The third stanza continues ‘Thou also art a man indeed,
A man so fine, so good so pure. ’ This is because Luke gives emphasis to Him
as a man with the finest humanity.
In the fourth stanza, the Lord is presented as a slave as Mark does in his gospel. ‘Thou even art a lowly slave. ’
Stanza 5 brings out His Kingship. ‘Thou art, beside all these, a King. ’ As Mathew does portray.
Even though the order of the gospels are not found in this way in the New Testament, nevertheless Brother Lee masterfully puts the stanzas in that order to show the process that God went through to reach and save man. First, He stepped out of eternity as God (John). Then took up humanity by being born as a man (Luke). Followed by becoming a slave to serve man in His human living and being obedient unto death and that the death of a cross (Mark). Finally resurrecting and ascending to be Lord and King (Mathew). In all these steps He redeemed us back to God.
The last stanza encourages us to remember Him in all these aspects at the Lord’s table. As we partake of Him through the bread and the wine, we share Him as His counterpart.
The chorus is a joyful expression of all He is meets our every need. Our hearts should overflow with praise with this rich Christ in the four gospels!
