Meeting in the Savior’s Name (words only)
Meeting in the Savior’s name, “Breaking bread” by His command,
To the world we thus proclaim On what ground we hope to stand,
When the Lord shall come with clouds, Joined by heav’n’s exulting crowds.
From the cross our hope we draw, ‘Tis the sinner’s sure resource;
Jesus magnified the law, Jesus bore its awful curse;
What a joyful truth is this! O how full of hope it is!
Jesus died, and then arose; Yes, He rose, He lives to reign;
He will vanquish all His foes When to earth He comes again;
His the triumph and the crown, His the glory and renown.
Sing we, then, of Him who died, Sing of Him who rose again;
By His blood we’re justified, And with Him we hope to reign:
Yes, we look to see our Lord, and to share His bright reward!
