Let Us Be Bread
Thomas J. Porter
Sung on this track by the TEAL cantor with optional violin
Let us be bread, blessed by the Lord,
broken and shared, life for the world.
Let us be wine, love freely poured.
Let us be one in the Lord.
I am the bread of life, broken for all. Eat now and hunger no more.
You are my friends if you keep my commands,
no longer servants but friends.
See how my people have nothing to eat. Give them the bread that is you.
As God has loved me so I have loved you.
Go and live on in my love.
