Please Break This Bread Lord

Hands holding a loaf of bread on an earthen place, and a matching sup of wine:   Chorus:  Please break this bread Lord, Please break this bread. Bread of your body, risen in us, Pour Out your Wine, Lord,  Pour out your wine, Let it flow through us, To a thirsty world.  1 We’ve come to eat your bread, make us one, We’ve come to drink your wine, make us one, We’ve come in memory of your death, to give you thanks, We’ve come to celebrate your life and give you praise.  2 Let us be broken O Lord, to feed your sheep, Let us be poured out O Lord, that men may see, That you are spirit and life that satisfy, That you are risen in us to set us free.

    Chorus:
    Please break this bread Lord,
    Please break this bread.
    Bread of your body, risen in us,
    Pour Out your Wine, Lord,
    Pour out your wine,
    Let it flow through us,
    To a thirsty world.

    1 We’ve come to eat your bread, make us one,
    We’ve come to drink your wine, make us one,
    We’ve come in memory of your death, to give you thanks,
    We’ve come to celebrate your life and give you praise.

    2 Let us be broken O Lord, to feed your sheep,
    Let us be poured out O Lord, that men may see,
    That you are spirit and life that satisfy,
    That you are risen in us to set us free.
