Bread You have Given Us Lord That we May See (To Bring our Love)

This folk-style hymn about the Eucharist was written in the 1960s by American Roman Catholic performer and composer Joseph Edward (Joe) Wise (b. 1939).

It was included in LP album "Hand in Hand" released by Fontaine House in 1968 (ref).

No published sheet music has been located, and the song does not appear to be included in any later collections, either from Wise or by American publishers.   But it has been included in several hymn books compiled in African countries, including the Catholic Hymn Book, Nigeria.

Lyrics

Bread you have given us, Lord,
That we may see;
Wine you have given us, Lord,
That we may see;
Your heart and your flesh are forever one with us,
Lord, that we may see,
Lord, that we may see.

1 We come to sing at the table of love,
We come to sing at the table of love,
We come to sing all the songs we know
To bring our love, to bring our love.

2 We come to laugh at the table of love,
We come to laugh at the table of love,
We come to laugh all the joy we know
To bring our love, to bring our love.

3 We come to die at the table of love,
We come to die at the table of love,
We come to die all the death we know
To bring our love, to bring our love.

4 We come to be at the table of love,
We come to be at the table of love,
We come to be all the life we know
To bring our love, to bring our love.

5 I come with you to the table of love,
I come with you to the table of love,
I come with you whom I long to know
To bring our love, to bring our love.
