​Communion Song

This song is by Fred Hammond and appears on the album The Inner Court (1995).

Now we are gathered here
This time is sanctified
We drink of the rain and eat the bread
For our iniquities his body was bruised
And for our peace his blood was shead

But we gather not in sorrow

To commemorate (ah)

That he died to bring us
Back to the father

What you must realize
Its time to eat the bread
And drink against of
The bonds was set
That you agree with every word
That's in this eat
And that you embrace the masters hand

But its only to remind you

The law has been fulfilled (ah)

A new covenant abides
And that held is broken
We're trapped no longer inside

Chorus [3] (repeat 2x)
So eat the bread
And drink the wine
So we can have
Sweet Communion
He gave his life
Once for all time
So we can have
Sweet Communion

Voice
For I received from the Lord
What I also pass unto you:
The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed
Took bread, and when he had given thanks
He broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you
Do this in remembrance of me."
In the same way after supper he took the cup saying,
"This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, whenever
You drink, in remembrance of me. For whenever you eat this
Bread and drink this cup you proclaim the Lord's death, until he
Arose.
