Sacred Supper

By Russell Adams and Steve Israel

CCLI Number: 3135998

The disciples sing this song as part of the last supper in our Easter play. Russell and Steve wrote it before we decided to write the play. Everything came together somewhat miraculously. - Elton, June 1, 1999

(Verse 1)
And He broke the bread of Heaven for the masses
Then He poured the holy wine out to them all
And for all who came and ate
Of the Father's sacred supper
He gave the life that only Heaven had to give

(Chorus)
Sacred supper means to die to who you are
And to leave behind the life that you've designed
To drink His blood, to taste His flesh
To walk with Him in death
Then to live the life that only He can give

(Verse 2)
Yet in brokeness His love found full expression
And when emptied out His cup was then refilled
Now He bids for all to come
And partake His sacred supper
For in His love He's done what none of us could do

(Chorus)
Sacred supper means to die to who you are
And to leave behind the life that you've designed
To drink His blood, to taste His flesh
To walk with Him in death
Then to live the life that only He can give

(Bridge)
So trade your broken heart for bread upon His table
And let Him fill your empty life with His sweet love
Then take up His invitation
And partake of His sacred supper
To gain the life that only death to self can yield

(Sing Chorus twice)
Sacred supper means to die to who you are
And to leave behind the life that you've designed
To drink His blood, to taste His flesh
To walk with Him in death
Then to live the life that only He can give

(Ending)
You will live the life that only He can give.

I think our Gospel choir might be singing this - I really hope so - a powerful prayer for the most sacred act of remembrance - "Do this in memory of me."

our Lord's life purpose is cause for our current celebration n the tempo of this song catches that spirit adeptly. well done, all meeting of believers shld sing this song n b reminded that He is the Great Exchange for our little life.Only He can make that Great leap for us to the great destiny to be worked out in our life. The male vocals make me fall in love with our Master all over again, because our Lord is macho; not some puny excuse of a man that historians or religious ppl wants us to envision.the best decision for me is to take Him at His word; believe Him at His word.Amen n amen!love from Malaysia, serielena.

THIS SONG IS TRULY ANOINTED. IT IS WORSHIPFUL, AND CAUSES ME TO BECOME HUMBLE IN THE PRESENCE OF MY LORD AND SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST. THE MELODY IS EASY TO LEARN AND IT IS SUCH A BLESSING TO ME, PERSONALLY.

Found an appropriate hymn for the Insitution of the Eucharist and will teach the choir to sing for Holy Thursday this year.

Thank you for giving us this beautiful hymn. I included it for the Mass on Holy Thursday last year and it was appreciated by all. We plan on repeating it this year too as it is very appropriate to sing on Holy Thursday!
