For I received from the Lord

what I also delivered to you,
that the Lord Jesus
on the night when he was betrayed

took bread,
and when he had given thanks,
he broke it, and said,
"This is my body which is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me

In the same way also
the cup, after supper, saying,
"This cup
is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it,
in remembrance of me

For as often as you eat this bread
and drink the cup,
you proclaim the Lord's death
until he comes.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
