Grains of Wheat
Grains of wheat, richly gilded by the sun,
Purple clusters, collected from the vine,
These are altered, becoming love's own bread and sweet wine,
Now for us Jesus' body and his blood.
We enjoy true communion in this meal,
Many grains God has planted and made thrive;
Like the grain we are ground beneath life's sorrowful wheel,
In the bread, like the grain, we come alive.
As the grains join to form one loaf of bread,
As the notes come together in one song,
As the raindrops unite into the single vast sea,
So in Jesus' one body we belong.
We shall all sit together at the feast
Sharing bread as God's children, joined in one:
In this hope we rejoice as we go forward in peace,
Loving sisters and brothers of the Son.
