Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Christ bids us break the bread

Full 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.
