Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: O Father, bless this solemn day, When we assemble, sing and pray, To honor Christ, Thine only Son, Who tasted death for ev’ryone.
Verse 2: In fervent prayers and sacred hymns, We all cry out, “Remember Him,” And cry within, “For me He died, And for my sins was crucified.”
Verse 3: Then as we eat unleavened bread, And drink the cup, we bow our heads, And see the suff’ring death of Christ, His blood! His body! Sacrificed!
Verse 4: O Father, let us see His death, And hear “forgive them” on His breath, And feel His grief, disgrace and pain, O let us see His death again.
