An attempt to put into song the picture of wonder of Communion
as we examine ourselves and remember the awful and awesome sacrifice of Christ…


Lyrics

The Bread and the Wine

Make my heart a flame fed by sacred fuel
Like the fire on Elijah’s altar
Help me remember love is the lesson of the cross
Where Christ’s forgiveness flowed like water

Let my need be like a river and carry me to that ocean divine
I want to taste the wonder of the cross in the bread and the wine

The bread and the wine, the body and the blood
A sacrifice divine, God’s offering of love
The Father’s only Son, came to live to die
And I give thanks every time, Lord every time
I take the bread and the wine…

Make my voice a sword sharpened by your grace
Help me live my life as a witness
I want to stand against the darkness of this age
And share the truth of your forgiveness

Let the seed the Spirit planted grow together with the True Vine
I want to know the power of the cross in the bread and the wine

The bread and the wine, the body and the blood
A sacrifice divine, God’s offering of love
The Father’s only Son, cam to live to die
And I give thanks every time, Lord every time
I take the bread and the wine…
