Bread and Wine.

As we shared the elements of bread and wine, this morning, the following thoughts came to me. It’s never going to be classic literature, but the thoughts are sincere, and intended to bring glory to the Lord.

It’s only a tiny piece of bread, but it speaks of a God above
Who came, in the Person of the Son, to show how great His love.

It’s only a tiny piece of bread, but it speaks of atoning death
As Jesus completed His earthly work, and breathed His last human breath.

It’s only a tiny piece of bread, but it speaks of new life for me.
It reminds me of all that Jesus did, on that cross, at Calvary.

It’s only a little cup of wine, but it speaks of the Saviour’s blood
Shed on that cross, for all mankind; fulfilling the sacred Word.

It’s only a little cup of wine, but it speaks of the mighty flow
Of the mercy of God, to a sinner like me, and the grace that e’en I might know.

It’s only a little cup of wine, but it speaks of great sacrifice
As it spurted from head, hands, feet, and side; and the soldiers threw their dice.

It’s only a tiny piece of bread, and a little cup of wine;
But, each time I partake, I rejoice once again, in His wonderful love divine.

"It’s never going to be classic literature, but the thoughts are sincere, and intended to bring glory to the Lord."
However, that being said, perhaps the 3rd stanza could read
It reminds me of all that Jesus did, on that cross, at Calvary.
Just a suggestion instead of having 'me' rhyme with 'me'

Thank you, the cannuckbard, for a very useful suggestion upon which, as you may have noticed, I have acted.
Blessings
