My Favorite Communion Song!

IMG_20150517_121240

My favorite Communion song is Matt Maher’s “Remembrance”!  If you haven’t heard it then you must!!  This song describes perfectly my experience of the Catholic Liturgy and the Eucharistic Celebration.  When Christ tells His people “Do this in Remembrance of Me”, He is inviting us to be united to Him in body and spirit.  Christianity is about our response to that invitation.  Will we accept His invitation or will we turn away and leave, as many of His disciples did in John 6:66, after He gave His teaching on the Eucharist.  This teaching and this gift of the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of our lives as Catholic Christians.

REMEMBRANCE LYRICS

Oh, how could it be That my God would welcome me into this mystery Say take this bread, take this wine Now the simple made divine for any to receive

By Your mercy, we come to Your table By Your grace, You are making us faithful

Lord, we remember You And remembrance leads us to worship And as we worship You Our worship leads to communion We respond to Your invitation, we remember You

See His body, His blood Know that He has overcome every trial we will face None too lost to be saved None too broken or ashamed, all are welcome in this place

By Your mercy, we come to Your table By Your grace, You are making us faithful

Lord, we remember You And remembrance leads us to worship And as we worship You Our worship leads to communion We respond to Your invitation, we remember You

Dying You destroyed our death Rising You restored our life Lord Jesus, come in glory

Lord Jesus, come in glory Lord Jesus, come in glory Lord Jesus, come in glory

Lord, we remember You And remembrance leads us to worship And as we worship You Our worship leads to communion We respond to Your invitation We respond to Your invitation, we remember You

Songwriters Matt Redman; Matt Maher
