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.
