Worship Songs for Communion
The following songs are categorized as worship songs for communion and include some hillsong communion songs.
Carried to the Table by Leeland (above) is one of the most moving worship songs I have ever heard. Mephibosheth was the son of Jonathon and King David took him in after David had died and he called him to the table to eat daily and care for his needs. Mephibosheth was lame and this Bible account points to how as children of God we are so undeserving of God’s faithfullness and care.
