Lord Accept this Bread and Wine

The author and composer of this hymn of Eucharistic offering are unknown.   

There are reports on various internet forums that it was used in the USA during the 1970s.   Now (early 21st century) it appears to be popular among Asian congregations - and is one of the more popular Eucharistic hymns on this website.

If you have any information about it, especially who wrote it, or where to find the sheet-music, please leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.

Lyrics

Lord, accept this bread and wine
Take our hearts and make them thine
Take our work and our anxiety
Give us life and liberty.

Change this bread into your Body
and this wine into your Blood;
Change our lives, make us united, Lord,
to spread the love of Christ, the Lord.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Lord, accept this bread and wine
Take our hearts and make them thine
Take our work and our anxiety
Give us life and liberty.

Change this bread into your Body
and this wine into your Blood;
Change our lives, make us united, Lord,
to spread the love of Christ, the Lord.
