Break the bread, Lord

The day's work done, we gather now to eat.
Some of us have plenty.
Some hunger still.

Break the bread, Lord, and say the blessing.

This is the time for fellowship and sharing,
some of us secure,
some worried still.

Break the bread, Lord, and say the blessing.

This is the time to think about our family,
large and scattered now
but at one table, still.

Say the blessing, Lord, and break the bread.
For you give it to us, so that we all may eat.
