Christ bids us break the bread

Representative Text

1 Christ bids us break the bread
and share the cup he gave,
in token of the blood he shed
for those he died to save.

2 It was for us he came,
to bear, by human birth,
a crown of thorn, a cross of shame,
for every child of earth.

3 The Saviour crucified
in glory rose again:
we here remember him who died,
ascended now to reign.

4 Our hearts his word obey,
in thankfulness and love:
we feed on Christ by faith today
and feast with him above.

5 O Christ, once lifted up
that we might be forgiven,
we take the bread and drink the cup
and share the life of heaven.
