Mark 14:22-26 NLT
As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it.
Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, Take it, for this is my body.
And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it.
He gave it to them, and they all drank from it.
And he said to them,
This is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people.
It is poured out as a sacrifice for many.
I tell you the truth, I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new in the Kingdom of God.
Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.

The last words they would have sung as part of the Passover meal
come from the second part of the Hallel      – Psalms 114-118



Psalm 118:22-29 NLT
The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.
This is the LORD’s doing, and it is wonderful to see.
This is the day the LORD has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Please, LORD, please save us.
Please, LORD, please give us success.
Bless the one who comes in the name of the LORD.
We bless you from the house of the LORD.
The LORD is God, shining upon us.
Take the sacrifice and bind it with cords on the altar.

You are my God, and I will praise you!
You are my God, and I will exalt you!
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
