One Love Released

Loaf of bread and cup of wine in front of candles:    One bread, one body, one cup, one call, One faith, one Spirit, present in us all. One prayer, one blessing, one hope, one peace, One church, one people, One love released. 1 Is not this bread we share, The body of our Lord? Is not this wine we drink, The blood of Christ out-poured? 2 I am the bread of life, Eat and you shall live. To those who share this meal, My strength I’ll always give. 3 I am the living bread, As Manna from the sky. This bread I give to you, That you may never die. 4 No one will come to me, Unless our God has led. And I shall raise them up, Raise them from the dead!
This Eucharistic hymn was written by American Roman Catholic church-musicians and composers Kevin Keil and Robert H. Frenze.

It was originally published in 1999, and sheet music is available from MusicNotes - link below and OCP.
