An F♯ minor folk hymn in 4/4 time. Composed 2009.
Text from E.Y. Reese, in The Psalmist (Baptist), 1847.
1 “DO this” and remember the blood that was shed
Ere Calvary's Victim to slaughter was led
When sad and forsaken the garden alone
Gave ear to his sorrow and echoed his moan
2 Remember the conflict with insult and scorn
The robe of derision the chaplet of thorn
The sin cleansing fountain that streamed from his side
When “Father forgive them” he uttered and died
3 Remember that Victor o er death and the grave
He liveth forever his people to save
O take with thanksgiving this pledge of his love
The foretaste of rapture eternal above
