For the bread
For the bread which you have broken,
for the wine which you have poured,
for the words which you have spoken,
now we give you thanks, O Lord.
By this promise that you love us,
by your gift of peace restored,
by your call to heaven above us,
hallow all our lives, O Lord.
In your service, Lord, defend us,
in our hearts keep watch and ward;
in the world to which you send us,
let your kingdom come, O Lord.
Words: Louis Benson, 1924, Hymns, Original and Translated, 1925,
Tune: V. Earle Copes, The Methodist Hymnal, 1964
