Jesus took the bread,
daily gift of God,
formed of wheat and sweat and toil,
sun, rain, and sod.
In our hands we take
gifts of bread and wine,
gathered from the fields of earth,
signs of love divine.

Jesus blessed the bread,
thanked the God of grace,
thanked the One who made all worlds,
all time, all space.
Blessing, honor, praise,
all to God belong.
Let us lift our hearts to God
in a thankful song.

Jesus broke the bread;
then he poured the wine.
Broken body, life poured out,
God gives as sign.
Weak, afraid and lost:
that is when we’re healed.
In our human brokenness:
there God is revealed.

Jesus gives the bread
at our table still,
gives the cup to those who seek
God’s loving will.
Let us go in peace;
let us freely give,
sharing love with all the world
daily as we live.
