Behold the Lamb – Sunday Song

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

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

The body of our Savior Jesus Christ
Torn for you
Eat and remember
The words that heal the death that brings us life
Paid the price to make us one.

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

The blood that cleanses every stain of sin
Shed for you
Drink and remember
He drank death’s cup that all may enter in
To receive the life of God

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

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

As we share in His suffering
We proclaim Christ will come again
And we’ll join in the feat of heaven
Around the table of the King

Words and Music by Keith and Kristyn Getty
& Stuart Townend

This is a beautiful hymn for communion services and we’ve used it several times in different ways (all together, interspersed throughout communion). You can find the sheet music here or here.
