Communion Considerations


Tune: Consolation

('Not worthy, Lord, to gather up the crumbs';

also fits to tune of 'Abide with me')


You Lord call us to your Communion feast

Invite is to the greatest and the least

Your Supper you did institute, begin

That the lost souls of mankind you might win


It may appear as bread a small morsel

And as wine given, a small sip for all

But it a rich feast spiritual to share

By your grace we may approach it, well are


It a memorial of your love shown

For greater love the world has never known

Than one to lay down His life for us all

And restore us to state whence we did fall


Help us Lord, share gospel of salvation

You now the risen Lord o'er each nation

Jews and Gentiles, so all humanity

Saviour of the world, even unto me

    Bread and water is a rather strict diet and the idea of flesh and blood is a bit cabalistic. lol

      Thanks SB. Yes, it could seem cannibalistic, but I always aim to emphasise that it's symbolic, not becoming actual flesh and blood.

      It's interesting you commenting that as this time, as it's now Thursday. It's the festival of Corpus Christi (the Thursday after Trinity Sunday).
      I don't ascribe to the meaning of this festival, which in some churches celebrates the 'Real Presence' in the bread and wine - which is verging on cannibalism, I think.

      Good one Orchi.
