We are then already in the gulf, if God does not in mercy draw us out
of it. Moreover, what hope of resurrection can we have while
considering our flesh, which is only rottenness and corruption? Thus in
regard to the soul, as well as the body, we are more than miserable if
we remain within ourselves, and this misery cannot but produce great
sadness and anguish of soul. Now our heavenly Father, to succour us in
this, gives us the Supper as a mirror, in which we may contemplate our
Lord Jesus Christ, crucified to take away our faults and offences, and
raised again to deliver us from corruption and death, restoring us to a
Here, then, is the singular consolation which we derive from the
Supper. It directs and leads us to the cross of Jesus Christ and to his
resurrection, to certify us that whatever iniquity there may be in us,
the Lord nevertheless recognises and accepts us as righteous—whatever
materials of death may be in us, he nevertheless gives us life—
whatever misery. may be in us, he nevertheless fills us with all
felicity. Or to explain the matter more simply—as in ourselves we are
devoid of all good, and have not one particle of what might help to
procure salvation, the Supper is an attestation that, having been made
partakers of the death and passion of Jesus Christ, we have every thing
that is useful and salutary to us.

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
How sweet the name of Jesus
sounds in a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his
wounds, and drives away his fear.
It makes the wounded spirit whole,
and calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna to the hungry soul,
and to the weary rest.
Dear Name! the Rock on which I build,
my Shield and hiding place,
My never failing treas’ry filled with
boundless stores of grace.
Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
my Prophet, Priest, and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
accept the praise I bring.
Weak is the effort of my heart,
and cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.
Till then I would Thy love proclaim
with every fleeting breath;
And may the music of Thy name
refresh my soul in death.
