Covenant lyrics. This song is great to listen to when partaking the Holy Communion.
Jesus’ body, like the bread, was broken to rescue me from the curse. Jesus’ blood, like the cup, was poured to secure my salvation.
The Holy Communion was mentioned in the following bible verses:
19 He took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you. Do this in memory of me.” 20 Likewise, he took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.Luke 22:19-20 WEB
24 When he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me.” 25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.1 Corinthians 11:24-26 WEB

Surely You were broken So that I may be whole Surely You were beaten So that grace may unfold As I look at the cross I remember You How my healing was bought At the price of Your wounds Surely You were wounded Previous blood was spilled Surely You were forsaken For my sake You endured Tears from heaven fell As You were whipped and scourged My forgiveness was sealed By this covenant in blood I thank You Lord, I thank You Lord You are the Lamb of God Who takes away my sin No longer I but You live in me As You are so am I in this world As I eat of Your body I remember You As I drink of Your blood I see my life renewed
