Maundy Thursday

His Word proclaims, and we believe,
That in this Supper we receive
His very body, as He said,
His very blood for sinners shed. (“The Death of Jesus Christ, Our Lord,” st. 4, TLH 163)

Jesus, Thy feast we celebrate;
We show Thy death, we sing Thy name,
Till Thou return and we shall eat
The marriage supper of the Lamb. (“‘Twas on That Dark, That Doleful Night,” st. 5, TLH 164)

Go to dark Gethsemane,
All who feel the tempter’s pow’r;
Your Redeemer’s conflict see.
Watch with him one bitter hour;
Turn not from his griefs away;
Learn from Jesus Christ to pray. (“Go to Dark Gethsemane,” st. 1, LW 110)

O Lord God, who hast left unto us in a wonderful Sacrament a memorial of Thy Passion, grant, we beseech Thee, that we may so use this Sacrament of Thy body and blood that the fruits of Thy redemption may continually be manifest in us; Thou, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

[Timotheos]
