1. As we approach with confidence your throne of grace
To receive your holy sacrament
We obtain your mercy and your help in time of need
You fulfilled your holy covenant
2. You promised long ago one to save us
One like us, yet guilty of no sin
We beat him, abused him, and took his life,
A life he came to freely give.
The sun hid its face at the sight.
The earth shook and trembled in fright
For You were dead and buried in the cave
For those whom You came to save
Tho' justice demands that for sin we suffer loss
Yet Your mercy is the message of the Cross.
3. And so you feed us now with your own hand
"Do this in my memory" – your command
We remember your love that did not count the cost
The love that nailed you to a cross [PRE-CHORUS]
When we eat this Bread and drink from this Cup
We proclaim Your death and resurrection
Until You come again.
