The Lord desired to be among His own
To give the comfort He only could afford.
Seated at Supper the Master took a loaf
Which, having blessed, before He passed, He broke.
"This is my body", His people often quote
Owning His rights where He had been disowned.
He blessed the cup giving it to denote
The precious blood which shortly would be poured.
Such was the depth of God's sublime resource
To demonstrate love in its broadest force;
Oh glorious giving by which we are restored:
Oh great memorial confirmed by Christ enthroned.


  1. i love that jesus instituted this feast for us david.
    i quite often think at the lords supper on a lords day morning that as the loaf of bread is being passed and then the cup of wine passed from hand to hand that each of our fingerprints and our lip prints are all on there and we are one in christ!
    no divisions but all together in the lord.
    what a blessed thing!...from terry


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
