For the Bread Which You Have Broken

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.

For the Bread Which You Have Broken (Mī-pau Chú Lí ūí goán lâi peh)

Crashing Waters at Creation


Crashing waters at creation,
ordered by the Spirit’s breath,
first to witness day’s beginning
from the brightness of night’s death.

Parting water stood and trembled
as the captives passed on through,
washing off the chains of bondage,
channel to a life made new.

Cleansing water once at Jordan
closed around the one foretold,
opened to reveal the glory
ever new and ever old.

Living water, never ending,
quench the thirst and flood the soul.
Wellspring, source of life eternal,
drench our dryness, make us whole.
