Redeemed by Him, and then re-stored,
Keeping the death of Christ the Lord.
In memory we share this food,
The bread His flesh, the wine His blood.
Take, eat, and now remember Him,
His body broken in our stead,
In full forgiveness, ’til He come,
Share in the breaking of the bread.
Then as we take the cup of wine,
His life-blood shed to set us free
Deeply we drink from draught of pain,
His blood was shed for you and me.
Our sweet communion, Three in One,
By mercy, through his grace, we meet
To share in this memorial feast,
Then praise and worship at His feet.
