Gathering: Come to the Banquet
Refrain: Come to the banquet, come to the feast. Eat the bread of life!
Share in the singing, share in the joy, drink the cup of love!
Draw near and take the body of the Lord, and drink the holy blood for you outpoured, Saved by his body, hallowed by his blood, with souls refreshed, we give our thanks to God (refrain)
Psalm 147: O praise the Lord, Jerusalem.
Preparation of the gifts: One Bread, One Body
Refrain: One bread, one body, one Lord of all,
One cup of blessing which we bless. And we, though many, throughout the earth, We are one body in this one Lord.
Gentile or Jew, servant or free, woman or man, no more. (refrain)
Many the gifts, many the works, one in the Lord of all. (refrain)
Grain for the fields, scattered and grown, gathered to one for all. (refrain)
Communion: I Am the Bread of Life
I am the Bread of life, you who come to me shall not hunger; And who believe in me shall not thirst. No one can come to me Unless the Father beckons. (refrain)
Refrain: And I will raise you up, and I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up on the last day.
The bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world, And if you eat of this bread, you shall live forever, You shall live forever. (refrain)
Unless you eat of the flesh of the Son of Man and drink of this blood, And drink of this blood, you shall not have life within you. (refrain)
I am the Resurrection, I am the life. If you believe in me,
Even though you die, you shall live forever. (refrain)
Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, Who has come into the world. (refrain)
