Description A simple, yet eloquent communion anthem based on Jesus' words from Matthew 26:26-29. Kenneth Lowenberg has adapted the music from an aria in Bach's St. Matthew Passion; it is singable by any unison or two-part mixed choir. Especially effective as a youth choir anthem.

Anthem text
Take and eat, for this is my body.
Drink ye all of the cup.
This is my blood of the new testament
which shall be shed for you fro remission of sins.
I say to you: I will not drink this wine again until the day
I drink it new with all of you in the Kingdom of God.

-Matthew 26:26-29
