The Supper of the Lord (Precious Body, Precious Blood)

Cup with wine and plate with bread / hosts on an altar witha white cloth and brown background - Precious body, precious blood, Here in bread and wine; Here the Lord prepares the feast divine. Bread of love is broken now, Cup of life is poured; Come, share the supper of the Lord.  1 This is the bread of God Coming down from heav'n Giving life to us, to all the world. 2 " am the living spring  Of eternal life, You that drink from me shall not thirst again.  3 I am the bread of heav'n giving life to you;  you that eat this bread shall never die.  4 All those who feed on me have their life in me, as I have my life in the living God.  5 All praise to You, O Christ, present in this feast, in this bread we share in one life, one Lord.

Precious body, precious blood,

Come, share the supper of the Lord.
