Lyrics

God who is life, breath of our breath,
give to us all our daily bread!
Jesus the Christ taught us to pray
“Give us today our daily bread”
while hunger cries,
where justice dies,
begging-bowl children crowd, unfed,
God who is life, breath of our breath,
give to us all our daily bread!

God of the poor, God of the rich,
open our hands to share our bread!
Jesus the Christ offers his food,
breaking the common loaf of bread,
challenging powers,
greed that devours,
systems where scrapheap lives are led,
God of the poor, God of the rich,
open our hands to share our bread!

Lifegiving God, bless our good earth,
bless sun and rain to grow our bread!
Jesus the Christ, dying for peace,
teach us how life is more than bread!
Though power entrance,
though dollars dance,
trading in warfare, death and dread,
lifegiving God, bless our good earth,
lead us to justice, peace and bread!
