A Song for Breaking Bread - Conry

This is a hymn based on liturgical texts, which are in turn based on John 14:27.

It was written by American liturgist and composer Tom Conry (b 1951) and was included in his first collection, Ashes, which was published in 1978 by North American Liturgy Resources (ref).

It appears that sheet music is available in the Ashes guitar accompaniment book which is still in stock with SheetMusicPlus (link below - to be confirmed that the book really has scores for all items on the recording).

Lyrics

Peace I leave with you my friends my friends,
and I am with you till the end.

Lamb of god you take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us OR grant us peace.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Peace I leave with you my friends my friends,
and I am with you till the end.

Lamb of god you take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us OR grant us peace.

  1. The second recording you have here is actually not the Conry Song for Breaking Bread. There are two incredibly similar versions of this song out there.... one says, “Peace I leave with you my friends. I’ll stay with you from now until the end,” which is the second version you have. Conry’s says, “Peace, I leave with you, my friends, my friends, and I am with you ’til the end.” If anyone knows the composer of the “I’ll stay with you” version, please post it here. Thanks! Again--the first video from Georgetown’s Dahlgren Chapel, I believe, is the Conry Song for Breaking Bread.
