    Barton W. Stone (of Stone-Cambell movement fame) wrote only one hymn: “Behold the Love, the Grace of God.” What struck me about Stone’s text is how effusive it is: “My soul’s on fire, it pants to prove the fullness of redeeming love.” Though I decided to write new lyrics, I tried to retain the original text’s first-person awe and gratefulness for Jesus’ sacrifice. This would be a great song for communion or Good Friday. Think of it as a gospel sibling of “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.”

    This song draws its inspiration from John S.B. Monsell’s 1866 hymn “I Hunger and I Thirst.” I added a chorus and rewrote the original text. Drawing from the “I AM” titles for Jesus, the three verses of this uptempo communion hymn focus on bread, blood, and water.

    In 1747, Charles Wesley wrote a beautiful hymn that turns the parable of the great banquet in Luke 14:15-24 into a sung altar call. This lively folk melody captures the urgency of that call to salvation, giving new life to this historical text.

    This song is mentioned in Greg’s podcast, “2021 Musical Year in Review.

    This simple, reflective communion song focuses on the way Jesus feeds our hearts at the table. The congregational version of the song includes a piano part and has the option of three keys with modulations: C, D and F. Though your congregation will pick up the tune in no time, you may want to consider introducing it with the arrangement for SATB Choir and Piano.

    During the COVID-19 quarantine, we all learned how much we cherished gathering for worship. We especially felt the absence of gathering around the communion table–the one thing that can’t be moved to an online forum.

    And yet, the Body of Christ has always been both gathered and scattered. We are scattered all over the globe and too often fractured by disagreements, but we also know a common bond in Christ that transcends all boundaries–the mystical “communion of saints.” This is a song of communion and unity that looks forward to the time when people from every tribe, language, people, and nation will gather as one at the throne of God.

    If you’re holding online services, feel free to play the video or sing along to the lyric video.

    In this song’s lyrics, Tammy Moody ties together images of harvesting the land, social justice, and the Lord’s Supper. The more connections we can make between what we do in worship and in the world, the better.
