Refrain: May we find richness in the harvest of justice
Which Christ Jesus has ripened for us.
Bread for the journey, bread for the hungry,
All for the glory and praise of God.

1. Gather with patience for those who have nothing.
Leave them your riches, and you will receive.
Make room for the poor ones; make way for the stranger;
For I am the Lord, the Lord your God.  Refrain

2. For to have mercy on those forgotten,
This is My true law, this is My command;
Clothe the naked, be home for the orphan,
Be hope for the widow, and welcome the lost.  Refrain

3. For to have little is to be in abundance.
To give what remains, to give all we have,
is to walk with the poor ones, and become the stranger,
One with the Lord, the Lord our God.  Refrain
