Let Us Break Bread Together

Let Us Break Bread Together

Let us break bread together on our knees, (on our knees)
Let us break bread together on our knees. (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees, (on our knees)
Let us drink wine together on our knees. (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees, (on our knees)
Let us praise God together on our knees. (on our knees)
When I fall on my knees with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

On Thanksgiving Day

We praise you, our God,
on Thanksgiving Day ~
Your glory reflects on our faces.

Our hearts are focused
on mercy so great ~
You fill us with joy by your graces.

Rememb’ring the gift
of Jesus our Lord ~
your love never fails to amaze us.

Awesome, unequaled,
that love so divine ~
Our voices resound with your praises!

“…O, LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth —
you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way.”

(2 Chronicles 6:4, NIV)
