For the bread which you have broken

Louis F. Benson, 1855-1930
I-to Loh, b. 1936

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 pledge, Lord, that you love us, by your gift of peace restored, by your call to heaven above us, hallow all our lives, O Lord.

3 As our blessed ones adore you, seated at our Father's 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.
