Author: Shirley Erena Murray Hymnal: Voices United #456 (1996) Meter: 188.8.131.52.4.8 Hymnal Title: Voices United Lyrics: 1 Now to your table spread
we come, each one in faith
that you alone provide the words of life and death:
in wine and bread,
on promised food
we find your loving heart, O God.
2 Hands of the world stretch out
your mystery to touch
in longing to believe a truth beyond our reach,
to sing in joy,
to cry in grief,
to know your meaning for our life.
3 Here is our common wealth
in sharing what is good,
as though all humankind around one table stood,
this bread to break,
this wine to taste:
one people in the name of Christ.
