Taking in forgetting

How can I remember
If in dying He forgot?
How can I be trembling
If my soul His dying bought?

He said to remember
His dying and His life,
He will not remember
My iniquity and strife.

So when we remember
With cup and with the bread,
We know that He’s forgotten
Because His blood ran red.

We take in His forgetting
When we pass from hand to hand
In His grace we are standing
For He now has no demand.

Lord, help me to remember
Not the ill that I have done,
But that now I am a member
Of my Savior, Your only Son.

"For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more” (Hebrews 8:12)

"And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19)
