Wednesday Is for Worship: Behold the Lamb (Communion Song)

Wednesday-Is-for-Worship

This is Wednesday, but it’s also the day that we have scheduled at our church to celebrate the Lord’s Supper.  Our church has two campuses, and one of the ways we try to promote unity is to worship together on Wednesday nights, and about every four months, the gathered campuses celebrate the Lord’s Supper.  Tonight is that night for us.  So, today’s song is a Lord’s Supper song, “Behold the Lamb (Communion Song).”

Written in 2007 by Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, and Stuart Townend and published through Thankyou Music, “Behold the Lamb” was written specifically to help Christians prepare for and celebrate Lord’s Supper.  Enjoy the rich lyrics that point us to the rich story of Jesus Christ, which is symbolized in the eating of bread and the drinking the fruit of the vine.  May it prepare your heart for the next time you celebrate the Lord’s Supper!

Verse 1
Behold the Lamb who bears our sins away
Slain for us and we remember
The promise made that all who come in faith
Find forgivness at the cross

Chorus
So we share in this bread of life
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bonds of peace
Around the table of the King

Verse 2
The body of our Savior Jesus Christ
Torn for you eat and remember
The wounds that heal the death that brings us life
Paid the price to make us one

Verse 3
The blood that cleanses ev’ry stain of sin
Shed for you, drink and remember 
He drained death’s cup that all may enter in
To receive the life of God

Verse 4
And so with thankfulness and faith we rise
To respond and to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As his body here on earth
