FEED US NOW

1. Feed us now, Bread of life, in this holy meal;
let us know your love anew: we hunger for you.
Feed us now, Bread of life, come and live within;
let your peace be ours today, Lord Jesus, we pray.

2. Piece of bread, glass of wine: Lord, this food is good;
love and mercy come to us — your promise we trust.
Piece of bread, glass of wine; who can understand
how his mercy works in these? Yet, Lord, we believe

3.God is here, O so near,
nearer than our thoughts.
Stay with us where'er we go; Lord, help us to grow.
God is here, O so near,
in this heaven's meal.
May we always feed on you — on the bread that is true.


1976. The sweet, romantic tune almost makes up for the ordinary style of the lyrics. And the subject matter too! Though the song concerns the centre of Christian devotion, I hope that it communicates a down-to-earth appreciation of God's meal, and God's holiness too. Our natural inclination leads us to locate holiness outside of the everyday world. The sacrament of Holy Communion can help us understand that God's holiness is right here — for a start, in bread and wine!


 

50 Years Of Songs -Postponed!

 

Last year in August we celebrated 50 years of songs.

A great night at Concordia College in Adelaide.

Nearly $7,000 was raised for ALWS's GRACE PROJECT, for the education of refugee children.

Robin & Dorothy, with the help of Thom Mann & friends, were planning to be at Luther College Chapel in Croydon, Melbourne on June 6 to sing & play the songs that Robin's written over the past half century.

However, just when things seemed to be organizing well, the COVID-19 threat grows & grows. So we decided that we won't be in Victoria in June.  Hopefully, if the virus is contained or minimized, we might make it later in the year.
