Lyrics

  1. 1. Jesus of Nazareth,
    Savior and King!
    Triumphant over death,
    Life thou didst bring,
    Leaving thy Father's throne,
    On earth to live,
    Thy work to do alone,
    Thy life to give.
  2. 2. While of this broken bread
    Humbly we eat,
    Our thoughts to thee are led
    In rev'rence sweet.
    Bruised, broken, torn for us
    On Calvary's hill--
    Thy suff'ring borne for us
    Lives with us still.
  3. 3. As to our lips the cup
    Gently we press,
    Our hearts are lifted up;
    Thy name we bless!
    Guide us where'er we go,
    Till in the end
    Life evermore we'll know
    Through thee, our Friend.
  4. Text and music: Hugh W. Dougall, 1872-1963
