The Covenant lyrics are great to listen to when partaking the Holy Communion. Jesus’ body, like the bread, was broken to rescue me from the curse. Jesus’ blood, like the cup, was poured to secure my salvation.
The Holy Communion was mentioned in the following bible verses:
19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.Luke 22:19-20
And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.1 Corinthians 11:24-26

Surely You were broken So that I may be whole Surely You were beaten So that grace may unfold As I look at the cross I remember You How my healing was bought At the price of Your wounds Surely You were wounded Previous blood was spilled Surely You were forsaken For my sake You endured Tears from heaven fell As You were whipped and scourged My forgiveness was sealed By this covenant in blood I thank You Lord, I thank You Lord You are the Lamb of God Who takes away my sin No longer I but You live in me As You are so am I in this world As I eat of Your body I remember You As I drink of Your blood I see my life renewed
