Communion: Songs of Remembrance

Communion Songs of Remembrance 640x361 In this feature, we'll examine some beautiful songs that point to the bread and the cup. These special pieces remind us of Christ's body broken for us, His blood shed for us, and they call us to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf.

The Bible says, "On the night when the Lord Jesus was betrayed, He took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and said, “This is My body; it’s for you! Do this in remembrance of Me.” He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Whenever you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me.”

As we take the bread and the cup, we give thanks, and we remember all that He has done. The following songs of remembrance include SATB, 2-part, and Praise & Worship offerings that focus our hearts on Christ and give thanks for His sacrifice.
