Scripture: Matthew 26:14-27:66
1 Like Judas, I had sold my soul By selling out the Lord.
He bought me back, paying the toll That I could not afford.
2 “My time is near,” the Master said, “To keep the Passover.”
We’ll drink the wine and break the bread (I’ll give my life what's more).
3 That evening Jesus took the bread And broke it for the twelve.
In this great act He in truth He fed Them with His profound love.
4 This is My body that you eat, Broken for you this night.
By my own death, death I will cheat And your deaths I’ll requite.
5 Now take this cup which is my blood-- Exculpation of sins.
Imbibe the cleansing, saving flood; Behold! New life begins.
Original words sung to the tune of "Jesus, the Very Thought of You" (LBW 316)
