This blessing cup

Psalm 115

for Bob Gilmore (1902-92)

  • Refrain:
    This blessing cup, which we bless,
    is one with the blood Christ shed for us.
  1. How can I repay the Lord
    for such great goodness?
    I will bless the cup of salvation,
    I will call on God's name.
  2. Precious in the eyes of God
    is the death of all faithful.
    I am your servant, Lord,
    for you give me freedom.
  3. I will give the Lord my thanks
    for all that's given me.
    I will love the Lord
    and praise God's name for ever.
