One aim of the New Scottish Hymns album was to introduce some new songs that churches in Scotland (and further afield!) might find useful in their own unique worship services. Scottish traditional music and folk melodies have an adaptable quality that renders the best of them timeless. It’s important to remind new generations that these ancient words of scripture remain profoundly relevant, and that the gospel of Jesus is still the greatest thing worth singing about!

Lyrics –

According to Thy gracious word
In meek humility
This will I do, my dying Lord
I will remember Thee

Thy body, broken for my sake
My bread from Heaven shall be
The testamental cup I take
And thus remember Thee

Gethsemane can I forget
Or there Thy conflict see
Thine agony, and bloody sweat,
And not remember Thee?

When to the cross I turn my eyes
And rest on Calvary
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice
I must remember Thee

Remember Thee, and all Thy pains
And all Thy love to me
Lord while a breath, a pulse remains
I will remember Thee

And when these failing lips grow dumb
And mind and memory flee
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come
Jesus, remember me
