For the Bread Which You Have Broken

For the Bread Which You Have Broken

1      For the bread which you have broken,

        for the wine which you have poured,

        for the words which you have spoken,

        now we give you thanks, O Lord.

2      By this promise that you love us,

        by your gift of peace restored,

        by your call to heav’n above us,

        hallow all our lives, O Lord.

3      With the saints who now adore you,

        seated at the heav’nly board,

        may the church still waiting for you

        keep love’s tie unbroken, Lord.

4      In your service, Lord, defend us;

        in our hearts keep watch and ward;

        in the world to which you send us

        let your kingdom come, O Lord.
