Words: R. Frederick Crider, Jr.
Music: tune Wellesley, by Lizzie S. Tourjee, 1877
This new hymn for Holy Communion is by United Methodist pastor R. Frederick Crider, Jr., and is based on Mark 14:22-25. The hymn reflects on the sacrament as both a private and shared experience in which we recall God’s love, Jesus’ sacrifice, and celebrate Christ’s resurrection and eternal presence.
Fred Crider's photo, biography, contact information and links to additional songs and choral music are available on the Discipleship Ministries website.
