Cup has been lifted,
life blood been spilled.
Jesus is true wine,
meaning is filled.
Bread has been broken,
Christ crucified.
Love to us given,
life sanctified.

Peace has been spoken.
We are made whole.
Our living Christ-like,
our only goal.
Moving from table,
action complete.
Scattered we serve Christ
as hands, as feet.

Cup has been lifted,
life blood been spilled.
Jesus is true wine,
meaning is filled.

Author / Composer Comments

This gentle ‘post-communion’ selection is often used during the distribution of the communion element(s). While originally intended to be a choral piece accessible for small choirs, it is also effective as a congregational hymn. Another possible use is to sing just the last four lines as a response to having received the gifts of communion.
