06. Communion

Wherever You Are
by Third Day



 

This is the body
This is the blood
Broken and poured out
For all of us
In this communion
We share in His love
This is the body
This is the blood

I will remember everything, Lord
That You’ve done for me
I won’t take for granted
The sacrifice that set me free
I hunger and thirst for Your love
Come fill me today

We hunger and thirst for Your love
And Your righteousness
We long for Your presence here, Lord
Be with us again

Behind the Song:
'Two of the songs on the CD were inspired by the movie “The Passion of the Christ”: “Communion” and “Carry My Cross.” I wanted to have a song that served as a reminder of the sacrifice that Jesus had gone through and of our need for that sacrifice. That’s where “Communion” came from. Musically, we wanted to write this song as a tool for the church to use in worship. It was meant to be a simple song (just 1 verse) that could be used in churches, Bible studies or cell groups and with just a guitar/piano and a few chords/notes…so everyone could worship together. The song makes me think of the story from John 17 where Jesus was in the garden before he was crucified. He prayed to the Father to unite His followers together and to himself…just as He and His Father are united. So, when we participate in communion, we not only unite with the Father, but we also come together with our brothers and sisters…in communion.' – Mac Powell (Third Day)
