Deeper Love: A Song for Communion

For deeper love we spread the bread

I won’t be full till all are fed

Till every soul has home and bed

The rest of us can’t move ahead


For deeper love we share the wine

I cannot taste the love divine

Till every soul has walked the line

And you’ve had yours like I’ve had mine


Now Mary sings her birthing song

Till every voice can sing along

And voices weak will rise up strong

Her choir is one where all belong


No one’s saved till all are healed

As Jesus on the Mount revealed

Your life and mine forever sealed

Just like the lilies of the field


We follow where the Christ has led

To table that for all is spread

And no one’s sitting at the head

But deeper love in wine and bread


Tune:  O Waly Waly (Welsh folk tune, “The Water is Wide”), New Century Hymnal #362
