Music in the Morning No. 406 – Praise the Lord

 

Many worship songs are bouncy and bright.  This is not.  This is deep!

 

Communion Hymn                                                          Stuart Townend

 

 

Behold the Lamb who bears our sins away,
Slain for us: and we remember:
The promise made that all who come in faith
Find forgiveness at the cross.
So we share in this Bread of life,
And we drink of His sacrifice,
As a sign of our bonds of peace
Around the table of the King.

The body of our Saviour, Jesus Christ,
Torn for you: eat and remember
The wounds that heal, the death that brings us life,
Paid the price to make us one.
So we share in this Bread of Life,
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of love
Around the table of the King.

The blood that cleanses every stain of sin,
Shed for you: drink and remember
He drained death's cup that all may enter in
To receive the life of God.
So we share in this Bread of Life,
And we drink of His sacrifice,
As a sign of our bonds of grace
Around the table of the King.

And so with thankfulness and faith
We rise to respond: and to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As His body here on earth.
As we share in His suffering,
We proclaim: Christ will come again!
And we'll join in the feast of heaven
Around the table of the King.

 

Father, thank You for Your Son.
In Him, and through Him, is our salvation should we choose to give ourselves.
We choose but so often we distance ourselves from Him.
Father, we try but come up short time after time after time
But still you are patient where You see us strive and struggle.
May You see and hear us meeting with You and Your Son as we worship and as we receive communion.
Father, in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord, we pray.

Amen
