Chorus
Oh remember remember the cross
From my side issued water and blood
This was no accident
I bore the wrath of My God

Verse 1
A shocking thing this
That we should forget
The Savior who gave up His life
To turn from the cross indifferent
And let our minds veer
Toward self-love and strife
This Table this rite is habit
And yet Christ's words
Pierce our shame like a knife
While breaking the bread
The Lord Jesus said
Do this in remembrance of Me
Do this in remembrance of Me

Verse 2
Enamored with power surrounded by praise
We set out ecclesial plans
Efficiency hums and we spend our days
Defending promoting our stands
Techniques multiply our structures amaze
The gospel slips out of our hands
While breaking the bread
The Lord Jesus said
Do this in remembrance of Me
Do this in remembrance of Me

Verse 3
Remember My bed the dank cattle shed
Though glory was all My domain
Remember the years of service and tears
That climaxed in lashings of pain
By God's own decree your guilt fell on Me
And all of My loss was your gain
While breaking the bread
The Lord Jesus said
Do this in remembrance of Me
Do this in remembrance of Me

Verse 4
Remember My tears Gethsemane's fears
Recall that My followers fled
That I was betrayed disowned
And arraigned
The Prince of Life crucified dead
Remember your shame your sin your blame
Remember the blood that I shed
While lifting the cup
The Savior spoke up
Do this in remembrance of Me
Do this in remembrance of Me

Verse 5
So now when we eat
This feast simply spread
I blush I forget to recall
For this quiet rite
Means once more we've fed
On bread that gave life once for all
Memorial feast just wine broken bread
And time to reflect on Christ's call
While breaking the bread
The Lord Jesus said
Do this in remembrance of Me
Do this in remembrance of Me

Ending
Oh remember Me
While lifting the cup
The Savior spoke up
Do this in remembrance of Me
Do this in remembrance of Me
