    Before I Take the Sacrament

    Thoughtfully

    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.
