Let us Break Bread Together

The author and composer of this Afro-American spiritual are unknown.   It refers to some very traditional Catholic Eucharistic practices (facing east), and it appears that there have been very few cases where alternative words are set to the tune.

Lyrics:

Let us break bread together on our knees,
Let us break bread together on our knees.
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees,
Let us drink wine together on our knees.
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees,
Let us praise God together on our knees.
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.
