This is a Communion or Lord’s Supper hymn and may be sung to the tune of “O God our help in ages past” (CM). It is an excellent hymn. Try singing it at your next Communion service. You will be truly blessed as a congregation!

This hallowed ground we consecrate
With sorrow turned to praise
For Christ our sin and shame did take
And full atonement made

The moment sinless deity
Was cursed upon the tree
And his perfect obedience
Set guilty captives free

So here our cup to him we raise
A covenant of blood
For God the Son our ransom paid
When in our place he stood

And here the bread again we break
And eat this common meal
For by our Saviour’s sacred wounds
Our fatal wounds were healed

And so this ground we consecrate
Not with mere bread and wine
But with our hearts and heads and hands
And lives to him resigned

Remember, then, and celebrate
His body and his blood
As here by faith our souls partake
Of Christ as holy food
