Be gentle when you touch bread
Be gentle, when you touch bread, Let it not be uncared for, unwanted. So often bread is taken for granted. There is so much beauty in bread, Beauty of sun and soil, Beauty of patient toil. Winds and rain have caressed it, Christ often blessed it; Be gentle when you touch bread.
Be loving when you drink wine, So freely received and joyfully shared in the spirit of him who cared; Warm as a flowing river, Shining as clear as the sun, Deep as the soil Of human toil, The winds and air caressed it, Christ often blessed it, Be loving when you drink wine.
