Where Two or Three are Gathered (Here in the bread that is broken)

This hymn about Eucharist and community was written by Irish Roman Catholic priest, song-writer and performer Liam Lawton (b 1959). 

It is based on Matthew 18:20, "where two or three are gathered in my name", and is particularly suitable for the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord's Supper - the fourth verse is specifically for this liturgy.

The song was included in Lawton's 2009 album Healing Song, and copyright was registered by Somerset Recordings and GIA Publications, Inc.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Lawton, and arranged for publication by Paul Tate. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of Y, the first few notes are F FG A FE E_ D_

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
Here in the bread that is broken, here in the cup that is poured,
Here in the word that is spoken: Jesus Christ is Lord!
Here where the poor find their treasure, here where the greatest are least,
Come find a love beyond measure in this heavenly feast.

1  Where two or three are gathered, gathered in my name ...

2  Where two or three are gathered, I am there as well ...

3  Where two or three are gathered, I am there with you ...

4  Where two or three are gathered, gathered in my name ....

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Chorus:
Here in the bread that is broken, here in the cup that is poured,
Here in the word that is spoken: Jesus Christ is Lord!
Here where the poor find their treasure, here where the greatest are least,
Come find a love beyond measure in this heavenly feast.

1  Where two or three are gathered, gathered in my name,
I come with words of comfort to ease your hurt and shame.

2  Where two or three are gathered, I am there as well,
inviting my disciples in perfect love to dwell.

3  Where two or three are gathered, I am there with you,
I lead you into freedom, my path is safe and true.

4  Where two or three are gathered, gathered in my name,
I wash your feet in service, now you must do the same.
