And as they were eating, Jesus took bread,
and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to
the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
Matthew 26:26

This Bread ~ This Cup

This Bread ~ this Cup are more
Than nourishment and wine.
This Bread is My Body.
Eat it as divine.
This Cup ~ My holy Blood,
Drink and you are Mine.
This Bread I break with you,
A symbol to us both.
This Cup, we drink together,
A solemn, holy, oath.
As often as you think of Me,
Partake and know I think of thee.
And, ever after shall you know
I have forgiven all!
Those who will shortly mock and scorn
For whom I rise ... and fall.
So, you must do it, too,
Nor drink this cup at all!
This one condition I must hold.
So, do not take in vain
The Bread, the Cup, until you know
Your heart forgives all pain.
Sanctify and purpose Love.
For, I shall come again!
