This Blessing Cup

Chalice represented in stained glass, blue background.    Chorus:  This blessing cup is our communion In the Blood of Christ Each time you drink this cup You proclaim His death until He comes.  1 How can I repay the Lord for His goodness to me The cup of salvation I will raise And call on His name. 2 Father please hear my preayer May this chalice pass by But if you want that I should drink Your will be done.   3 To you I give my heart, You are father to me And I will live within your house Strong in your love.
This hymn about the Eucharistic was written by Australian Roman Catholic priest and liturgist Fr Frank Andersen MSC.

It was originally published in the Eagles Wings collection, and so is now included in Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC, which is still available.   Both of these publications include lead-sheet style sheet music.

The words are based on 1 Cor 10:16 and Psalm 115 - which is the psalm for the Mass on the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday.    Because of this, there are a number of other hymns with similar titles, usually starting "Our Blessing Cup".

The tune was written by Andersen:  it has a 4/4 time signature, and in the key of C the first few notes are G, C D E FGA G E.

Chorus:
This blessing cup is our communion
In the Blood of Christ
Each time you drink this cup
You proclaim His death until He comes.

1 How can I repay the Lord for His goodness to me ...

2 Father please hear my prayer, may this chalice pass by ...

3 To you I give my heart, You are father to me ...
