This second communion hymn, composed by George Rawson, flows from the command of our Lord to commemorate his death in the Lord's supper until he returns (see the refrain). The last words of each stanza point us toward the hope we have in Christ: Had Christ not redeemed us by His death and resurrection, we would be terrified, rather than joyful, at the thought of His return. We would be making ready to flee His presence rather than fall at His feet in worship. This hymn teaches our need for a Saviour, the excellent work He did in saving us, the unity we have as congregation, that He will come again to raise us from the dead, and the everlasting celebration we will enjoy with Him and all the church.
