Bittersweet

This song is by Michael O'Brien and appears on the album God Speed (1998).

Ooh-ooh-ooh...
Ooh-ooh-ooh...

The chosen twelve, the upper room
The Son of Man preparing to be leaving soon
The bread of life, the wine of sacrifice
He gave His life to save us all, to save us all

And, oh, the living bread is bittersweet
That Jesus broke for me
The loving cup reminds me as I drink
I know something of His mercy now
I've tasted of His grace
It's bittersweet this bread we eat
This cup is bittersweet

So this we do in memory
Of Him who died that we might live eternally, oh...
A boundless love, which cost His flesh and blood
His death gave us undying hope, undying hope

And, oh, the living bread is bittersweet
That Jesus broke for me
The loving cup reminds me as I drink
I know something of His mercy now
I've tasted of His grace
It's bittersweet this bread we eat
This cup is bittersweet

If any man is hungry
Come and eat this bread of life
And for those who thirst
There is a cup that overflows
The price was paid in full
A sinless man chose willingly
To die for me and you

And, oh, yes, the living bread is bittersweet
That Jesus broke for me
Oh, the loving cup reminds me as I drink
I know something of His mercy now
I've tasted of His grace
I am myself unworthy
Of this sacrament, this sacrifice
It's bittersweet this bread we eat
This cup is bittersweet

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh...
Ooh-ooh-ooh...
