Back in the day, around 1977 my friend, Barry McGuire wrote the Communion Song. My husband met this wonderful man and talented songwriter at a party. We have heard Barry speak on TBN and have a special place in our hearts for his music, especially Bullfrogs and Butterflies for the children and this one, Communion Song for worship.

 Listen to the mp3 song here.


 Chorus
Each time you do
Remember Me remember Me

Verse 1
Take this bread I give to you
And as you do remember Me
This bread is My body broken just for you
Take it (take it)
Eat it (eat it)

Verse 2
Take this cup I fill for you
And as you do remember Me
This cup is the new covenant
I'm makin' with you
Take it (take it)
Drink it (drink it)

Verse 3
Take this love I've given you
And as you do remember Me
Remember Me remember Me

When I played the song on the worship team, we used the chords above. I'm still leaning
towards the first chord chart because you can do lots of soloing with the song, while your
voice follows. Do you have a list of songs for communion? This is just one that I use.
There's so many more inspiring, reflective worship songs to chose from.

Here is the chord breakdown. Some folks are more familiar with sight reading the
notes on the music staff but it just takes some time and practice to read slash chords.

L.H. / R.H.

Gmaj7 = GB/F#BD

A/G = GC#/EAC#

Dmaj7 = DA/C#F#A

G = GB/GBD

D = DD/F#A

Em = EG/BE

F#A = C#F#

G = GB/DG

A7 = AG/C#F#

D = DF#/AD

Bm = BF#B/F#BD

F#m/A = A/F#AC#

G = GDG/GBD

D = DF#A/ DF#A

G = GB/DGB

D = F#A/DF#A

Em = EE/GBG

A = AA/C#E

G = GB/DG

A7 = AG/C#F#

D = DF#/AD

Best of Barry McGuire
