Before I Take the Sacrament



  1. 1. Before I take the sacrament, I sit so quietly.

    I know that Jesus came to earth and died for me.

  2. 2. I think of all the boys and girls whom Jesus used to know,

    The days he walked upon the earth, so long ago.

  3. 3. I take the water and the bread and try so hard to be

    The kind of child that Jesus loved in Galilee.
