Before I Take the Sacrament


Before I Take the Sacrament


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

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

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

The kind of child that Jesus loved in Galilee.
