Bread of life, hope of the world,1. As we proclaim your death as we recall your life,
Jesus Christ, our brother;
feed us now, give us life,
lead us to one another.
We remember your promise to return again.
2. The bread we break and share was scattered once as grain:
Just as now it is gathered, make your people one.
3. We eat this living bread, we drink this saving cup:
Sign of hope in our broken world, source of lasting love.
4. Hold us unity, in love for all to see;
That the world may believe in you, God of all who live.
5. You are the bread of peace, you are the wine of joy,
Broken now for your people, poured in endless love.
