Mike Farley, a good friend and professor of Worship at Covenant Seminary suggested I look into Wesley’s ‘Hymns on the Lord’s Supper‘ last year when I was trying to find some good texts. Here is a great one I recently retuned. Love that Wesley refers to the Holy Spirit as the ‘Remembrancer Divine.’ This is also a possible song to use for celebrating Pentecost.
Come, Thou everlasting Spirit,
Bring to every thankful mind
All the Savior’s dying merit,
All His sufferings for mankind!
True Recorder of His passion,
Now the living faith impart;
Now reveal His great salvation;
Preach His Gospel to our heart.
Come, Thou Witness of His dying;
Come, Remembrancer divine!
Let us feel Thy power, applying
Christ to every soul, and mine!
Let us groan Thine inward groaning;
Look on Him we pierced, and grieve;
All receive the grace atoning,
All the sprinkled blood receive.
