We Make This Bread in Brokenness: Hymn for Holy Communion

Words: Gareth Hill, 2011
Music: Tune, MEYER, Seelenfreud (J. Meyer, 1692)

British Methodist pastor and hymn writer Gareth Hill packs a lot into these four short stanzas. He uses four actions (rhymed!) involved with bread for Holy Communion -- make, bake, break, ache -- not only for what we do physically with the bread, but also as a symbol for what we do with our lives as a response to the sacrament.
