In the breaking of the bread
we have known Him; we have been fed.
Jesus the stranger, Jesus the Lord,
be our companion; be our hope.
Bread for the journey, strength for our years,
manna of ages of struggle and tears.
Cup of salvation, fruit of the land,
bless and receive now, the work of our hands.
Bread of the promise, people of hope,
wine of compassion, life for the world.
Gathered at table, joined as one body,
sealed in the spirit, sent by the Word.
