Let us Break Bread Together

The author and composer of this Afro-American spiritual are unknown.   It refers to some very traditional Eucharistic practices eg facing east while praying and celebrating Eucharist. Iit 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.
