8.8.8.8.8.8.


1
LORD, in Thy supper now we see
The tokens of Thy matchless love!
Not death itself could stronger be
Than those affection Thou didst prove.
Thy peace, Thy joy Thou bringest here
Our souls to bless, our hearts to cheer.
2
The bread and cup before us now
Are witness to a work complete,
Through darkness dread, O Lord, when Thou
The awful power of death didst meet!
We praise Thee, Lord, as now come nigh,
Thee - whom we soon shall praise on high.

G. Gustafsson, fr. Swedish
