Table Song (Haas)

Learning this song for Mass at St. Matt's. 

Text and tune by David Haas. (c) 1991 GIA Publications.

REFRAIN: We are the body of Christ. Broken and poured out, 
promise of life from death, we are the body of Christ.

1. Is not the bread of life we break a sharing in the life of God?
Is not the cup of peace out-poured the blood of Christ?

2. How shall we make a return to God, for goodness unsurpassing?
This saving cup we shall hold high and call out God's name.

3. Unless a grain of wheat shall fall, upon the earth, it shall remain 
a single grain; but if it dies, it will come to life!

4. Come taste and see the goodness, the wonders of the risen one!
Come bless our God, in all things, let praise be our song!
