This Feast Was Jesus High Behest – Hymn Lyric

This feast was Jesus’ high behest,
This cup of thanks his last request.
Ye, who can feel his worth, attend:
East, drink, in mem’ry of your friend.

Around the patriot’s bust ye throng;
Him ye exalt in swelling song;
For him the wreath of glory bind,
Who freed from vassalage his kind.

And shall not he your praises reap,
Who rescues from the iron sleep?
The great Deliverer, whose breath
Unbinds the captives e’en of death?

Shall he, who, sinful men to save,
Became a tenant of the grave,
Unthank’d, uncelebrated, rise,
Pass unremember’d to the skies?

Christians! unite with loud acclaim,
To hymn the Saviour’s welcome name.
On earth extol his wondrous love;
Repeat his praise in worlds above.

   

Meaning of This Feast Was Jesus High Behest

This Feast Was Jesus’ High Behest: A Celebration of Love and Freedom

Oh, how marvelous it is to come together and celebrate the incredible love and sacrifice of our dear friend, Jesus! This hymn reminds us of Jesus’ last request, his high behest, to gather and remember him through this special feast. As we partake in this cup of thanks, let us truly grasp the worth and significance of this moment.

Imagine a grand celebration, where we sit around the table, just like good friends do. We share stories and laughter, and feel the warmth of friendship surrounding us. In this feast, Jesus is like the host, inviting us to partake in heavenly goodness and abundant love. So, my dear friends, let us attend to his invitation and drink, as we remember and honor our beloved Savior.

In the same way that we gather around a national hero’s statue and honor them with swelling songs, we must exalt Jesus, who truly deserves all glory and praise. Just like the wreath of glory we bind around the patriot’s bust, let us weave a crown of honor for Jesus, who has freed us from the chains of vassalage. His love and sacrifice have set us free, and we owe him our deepest gratitude.

But here is something truly remarkable to ponder: Shouldn’t the one who rescues us from the sleep of eternal darkness also receive our praises? The great Deliverer, who even has power over death itself, deserves our utmost gratitude. Let us never forget that Jesus, the Son of God, willingly entered the grave to save us sinners. Yet sometimes, he remains unthanked and uncelebrated, even as he ascends to the heavenly skies.

So, dear Christians, let us unite with loud acclaim! Let us raise our voices to the heavens and hymn the name of our Savior! On this earthly realm, let us extol his wondrous love and repeat his praise. And not only here, but let our songs of adoration reach the worlds above, resounding through the heavenly abode.

This feast, my friends, is not just a momentary gathering. It is a celebration of love and freedom that should resonate in our hearts every day. As we come together, we remember Jesus’ selfless act of giving his life for our salvation. We remember his unwavering love that transcends time and space. And as we do, our souls are filled with joy, comfort, and a renewed sense of purpose.

Let us not allow this feast to be a mere ritual or tradition, but let it be a constant reminder of Jesus’ sacrificial love. Let it be a source of inspiration to live each day in a way that honors his name. Let our lives be a testament to his goodness, grace, and mercy.

So, my dear friends, as we partake in this feast, let us embrace the spirit of unity, love, and gratitude. Let us celebrate the incredible gift that Jesus has bestowed upon us. And may our voices join in harmony, echoing through the ages, as we proclaim his name and spread his love to the ends of the earth.

This feast, this high behest, is not just a historical event, but a living reality in our hearts. May it continually remind us of the depth of Jesus’ love and his unwavering commitment to set us free. Let us carry this message of love, freedom, and redemption with us always, and may it inspire others to seek the embrace of our dear friend, Jesus.
