1 Jesus at the supper
took the loaf and said:
'Eat this and remember
for I am the Bread'.

2 Jesus at the supper
poured the cup of wine,
saying to them 'Drink this,
for I am the Vine'.

3 Ever since that supper
friends of Christ the Lord
in his name have gathered
to obey his word.

4 Young disciples joining
older ones to pray
shall receive God's blessing
on their lives today.

5 At the table sharing
these most holy gifts
every heart is strengthened,
every spirit lifts.
