Lyrics:
1.  *Let us talents and tongues employ,
    Reaching out with a shout of joy:
    Bread is broken, the wine is poured,
    Christ is spoken and seen and heard.
    Jesus lives again, earth can breathe again,
    pass the Word around: loaves abound!

2.  Christ is able to make us one,
    At the table He sets the tone,
    Teaching people to live to bless,
    Love in word and in deed express.
    Jesus lives again, earth can breathe again,
    pass the Word around: loaves abound!

3.  Jesus calls us in, sends us out
    Bearing fruit in a world of doubt,
    Gives us love to tell, bread to share:
    God (Immanuel) everywhere!
    Jesus lives again, earth can breathe again,
    pass the Word around: loaves abound!
