11. Remember Me

Wide-Eyed and Mystified
by downhere



 

The brightest stars of history
The triumphs, failures, infamy
Just blend into tapestry
The ebbing waves of memory's beach
Will mark the sand where waters reach
Impressions are all they leave

Words forgotten, never to return
But these precious few are flames that always burn

"Remember Me, remember Me
Every time you drink, and every time you eat
Remember Me, remember Me."

So we drink the wine and break the bread
Our senses will remind our heads
From now until Kingdom comes
Proclaiming what is carved in stone
A death that only One could own
So many would come to know

A life begotten which cannot be earned
The promise that will not be overturned

The blood that spilled, the body broke
Will not depart my frontal lobe
The Great Rebirth of 33, it was, it is, will always be

"Remember Me, remember Me
Every time you drink, and every time you eat
With every word you speak, and every breath you breathe
Remember Me, remember Me."

So take the bread, take the wine
Look beyond this mortal time
And wait for the Kingdom




Behind the Song:
"Remembering is a physical action; it happens in your brain. I love how God uses human ways to relate to us, and how he understands our shortcomings. The act of taking communion is a physical representation of a very powerful and mystical phenomenon—the death of Jesus Christ, which broke the bonds of sin and death, bringing eternal freedom to all who believe. Jesus chose to do this as flesh and blood. God became a man to perform the most important act in history. And being fully aware of people's forgetfulness, he instated a ritual—an act of remembrance—for believers to perform when they gather together, mainly because, well, we forget. Our brains lapse; we get comfortable with Truth, and it becomes less and less important to us as time goes by. And I'm even more likely to forget and take things for granted when I'm remembering something that I did not witness myself... like World War II or Veteran's Day (or Remembrance Day for you Canadians). Because of the life-changing nature of what Jesus did, knowing how forgetful we are, God made it easy for us and gave us a way to remember. I'm thankful for that." - Marc Martel (downhere)
