Table Song

Words and Music by Dan Rutledge

Hear 'Table Song'

Chorus
Take and eat this bread, take and eat this cup.
This is my Body. This is my Blood.
When you eat this bread, when you drink this cup
You take my Body and Blood.

Verse 1
A communion of the saints. A communion of the people.
A communion of the Body and the Blood of Christ.
A communion of our heart with our mind and soul and body.
A communion of ourselves to Jesus Christ.

Chorus
Take and eat this bread, take and eat this cup.
This is my Body. This is my Blood.
When you eat this bread, when you drink this cup
You take my Body and Blood.

Verse 2
In communion with our priest. In communion with all clergy.
In communion with our Holy Mother Church.
In communion with the past, with the present and the future,
and the Body and the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Chorus
Take and eat this bread, take and eat this cup.
This is my Body. This is my Blood.
When you eat this bread, when you drink this cup
You take my Body and Blood.

Verse 3
In communion with our strength. In communion with our weakness.
In communion with our thoughts and words and deeds.
In communion with our parents and our brothers and our sisters,
and our children and our Savior Jesus Christ.

Chorus
Take and eat this bread, take and eat this cup.
This is my Body. This is my Blood.
When you eat this bread, when you drink this cup
You take my Body and Blood.

End
This is my covenant to you.
