The Hymn I Wrote for Communion

05-holy-communionWriting hymns has become a great joy to me.  Music can convey so much.  I strive to write simple lyrics that anyone can understand and hopefully they will linger in the mind long after the music has ended.  Last Sunday when we had communion we sang this hymn that I wrote in 2008.  If you wish to use it, please contact me through this blog.

 

 

 

 

 

The Table of the Lord

Our food is here; the table spread,

We poured the wine and broke the bread.

This costly meal none can afford,

Provided freely by our Lord.

 

 

Come drink the wine and eat the bread.

Come hear the words our Master said.

“This is my body and my blood,

Now love each other as you should.”

 

 

“I spend my life-blood for your sake,

And though my body they will break,

My friends, I promise you will be

One day in paradise with me.”

 

 

Our food is here; the table spread.

We poured the wine and broke the bread,

This costly meal none can afford,

Provided freely by our Lord.

    1. Thanks Vicki,
      It has been fixed. That’s what happens when you import something from somewhere else on the computer. I think I need a new editor.
      Mollie 🙂
