Take And Eat, Take and Drink

Tomorrow is Communion Sunday at church. This is the day that we poor miserable sinners get to partake of the true body and Blood of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In this wonderful sacrament we are offered forgiveness of our sins.

I was paging through my hymnal this evening and stumbled upon one of my favorite hymns that is designated for the Lords Supper. I would like to share it with you. I particularly love verse three!

HYMN 629 What is This Bread (LSB hymnal)

What Is This Bread?

What is this bread?
Christ’s body risen from the dead:
This bread we break,
This life we take,
Was crushed to pay for our release.
O taste and see–the Lord is peace.

What is this wine?
The blood of Jesus shed for mine;
The cup of grace
Brings His embrace
Of life and love until I sing!
O taste and see–the Lord is King.

So who am I,
That I should live and He should die
Under the rod?
My God, my God,
Why have You not forsaken me?
O taste and see–the Lord is free.

Yet is God here?
Oh, yes! By Word and promise clear,
In mouth and soul
He makes us whole–
Christ, truly present in this meal.
O taste and see–the Lord is real.

Is this for me?
I am forgiven and set free!
I do believe
That I receive
His very body and His blood.
O taste and see–the Lord is good.

IF you would like to hear the tune watch the video below!

Sing Praises to Your King!
