11.10.11.10. Dactylic


1
JESUS, our Lord, we assemble together,
Here to remember Thyself whom we love,
For as Thine own we are feeling Thine absence,
Though we delight in Thy glory above.
2
Now, Lord, together in blessèd communion,
Praise we Thy name as Thyself we await.
Soon shalt Thou take Thine appointed dominion,
Soon shalt appear in Thy royal estate.
3
Till Thine outshining Thy death we are showing,
Owning Thee thus as the One without peer;
Whilst, Lord, that death of such shame and deep suff'ring
Unto Thy lovers Thyself doth endear.
4
For Thou hast loved us with love never failing,
Laid down Thy life for us, given Thine all.
Love strong as death has been proved and has triumphed,
Love which our hearts shall for ever enthrall.
