Bread and Wine

By Elton Smith and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 3896433

Here is a song for the communion. Larry wrote most of the lyrics (with a little help from me). I wrote most of the music (with a little help from Larry). In keeping with the subject, I tried to make the midi as reverent as possible. - Elton July 26, 2002
Many thanks to Peter Gringhuis for the vocal recording and accompaniment track. For all of you who requested this... sorry it took so long! - Elton June 13, 2012

Accompaniment Track


(Verse 1)
We gather now with bread and wine
(We gather now with bread and wine)
You are our Lord, and we are Thine ---.
Remembering Your covenant vow,
(Remembering Your covenant vow)
We gather in Your presence,
We come before You now.

Your body broken on the tree,
The blood You shed to set us free,
Remembering with bread and wine.
(Remembering with bread and wine)
We never will forget the price
You paid to be our Sacrifice.
We gather now with bread and wine,
Bread and wine.

(Verse 2)
We gather now with wine and bread
(We gather now with wine and bread)
In You, O Lord, our souls are fed ---.
We drink the wine that You have poured;
(We drink the wine that You have poured)
We eat the Bread of Life,
The body of our Lord.

(Repeat Chorus 2 times)
Your body broken on the tree,
The blood You shed to set us free,
Remembering with bread and wine.
(Remembering with bread and wine)
We never will forget the price
You paid to be our Sacrifice.
We gather now with bread and wine,
Bread and wine.

This is fabulous. Started to do Communion Service at church and got to tell you great song. Know there will be positive reactions from the congregation. Not only are the lyrics to the point but the whole song sings to God. Thanks for another song well done.

I wish I could hear the words sung with the music. I wanted to use it as part of a study on communion. I don't sing.

I've sung this beautiful communion piece a number of times in church and find that there is always a new person touched by it. Thank you.
