He took the loaf ‑ an object which He found
Conveniently for His desire and time;
And made its emblematic truth resound ‑
The banal, at His hand, became sublime.

He took the cup ‑ an object which He found,
Ready to hand, in a convenient place.
His touch made its symbolic truth redound
In praise that answers God's majestic grace

  1. dear david..after all of these years, we still pass the loaf and the one cup around in the remembrance of our lord..that has been hundreds of years, right?
    1 corinthians 11
    23For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

    24And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

    25After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

    26For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

    god bless you dear brother and your family too!


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
