Before I Take the Sacrament


35395, Children's Songbook, The Savior, Before I Take the Sacrament, 73

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.
