Theme: Sacraments and Ordinances

1.  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.

2.  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.

3.  With the saints who now adore You
    Seated at the heavenly board,
    May the church still waiting for You
    Keep love's tie unbroken, Lord.

4.  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.
