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

But we gather not in sorrow

Chorus [1]
To commemorate

Verse
That he died to bring us
Back to the father

What you must realize
Each time you eat the bread
And drink of this cup
It must be said
That you agree with every word
That's in this deed
And that you embrace
The master's death

But its only to remind you

Chorus [2]
The law has been fulfilled

Verse
A new covenant abides
And that veil was broken
We're trapped no longer outside

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

Voice
For I love 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
comes.

Chorus [3] 1x
