1. Jesus knew that the time to depart had now arrived;
He must go to the Father up above.
Having loved His disciples unto the very end,
Now He showed them the fullness of His love.
"This bread is my body broken for you; do this in remembrance of me.
This cup, the new covenant in my blood, by which you shall all be redeemed."
Now Christ is our Passover sacrificed; eternal life showed us the way.
We'll take up our cross and deny ourselves as we faithfully follow each day.
2. And while we were still sinners, Christ died for our sins,
Gave His life as a sacrifice for all.
Showing love and compassion for all His family,
Jesus Christ, He has reconciled us all.
3. Let us focus our eye on our Savior and our King,
as perfecter and author of our faith,
For the joy set before Him, our Lord endured the cross
so that we all would run and win the race.
4. He will never forsake us, He'll never leave His sons,
and His daughters will never be alone.
Interceding for sisters and brothers that He loves,
serving all of God's chidlren from His throne.
