Holy Thursday: Communion Antiphon

1 Corinthians 11:24-25

This is the Body that will be given up for you;
this is the Chalice of the new covenant in my Blood, says the Lord;
do this, whenever you receive it, in memory of me.
(1 Corinthians 11:24-25)`

Verse 1:

The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me;
he revives my soul.
(Psalm 23:1-3a)

Verse 2:

He guides me along the right path,
for the sake of his name.
Though I should walk in the valley of the shadow of death,
no evil would I fear, for you are with me.
Your crook and your staff will give me comfort.
(Psalm 23:3-4)

Verse 3:

You have prepared a table before me
in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing.
(Psalm 23:5)

Verse 4:

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life.
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
for length of days unending.
(Psalm 23:6)

Verse 5:

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
(Gloria Patri)
