PDF - Our Savior
v.1 (Transposed from Key of E Major to D major)
This is a simple Sacrament Hymn that I came up with the words one insomniac evening. The tune followed shortly. It is my hope that it expresses the Sacrament with dignity.
Cried, "Father, take this cup from me,
But if Thou wilt, I'll drink it all";
Atoning for our sins, and fall.
Were pierced with nails, His blood they shed.
Symbolic of His body torn;
We eat the bread, our souls reborn.
From head and feet, and side flowed free.
As symbols of His blood, so dear
We now partake the water, clear.
So that God's law He did appease
We come to Him, our hearts are rent,
And we partake His sacrament.
