Break us open to disclose how brokenness can
wherever broken loaves suffice to give a crowd a
and graves break open to release new life from
death’s dread seal.
Give us to the world you love, as light and salt and
that we may nourish in your name the last, the lost,
until at length you call us all to your unending feast.
