A Lord’s Supper Poem


  
We lift your high and holy name

God robed in flesh, to earth you came

And drank up all our guilt and shame

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

Who walked the Father’s steps each day

And spoke the words He gave to say

What e’re the cost in love obeyed

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

You died in bearing our disgrace

Upon the Cross you took our place

The Father’s wrath you full embraced

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

They laid you in a borrowed tomb

And gave you up to Death’s dark doom

In death you took the sinner’s room

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

Our debt, full paid, you rose again

And conquered death for fallen men

For all who’s hope on Thee depends

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

Ascending back from whence you came

You took your throne to rule and reign

And sent your Spirit for our gain

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

And now we wait your soon return

Your Spirit’s fire within us burns

As Bride for Groom, our soul’s do yearn

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour

Christ Jesus, Lord and Reigning King

Around this table gathering

We do as you have asked – this thing

In the broken bread

and the blood red cup

We remember you this hour
