Lyrics as Poetry

At the table of the world,
some have plenty, some have none.
At the table of our God,
all are plentifully fed.
Blow among us, Spirit of God,
fill us with your courage and care!
Hurricane and Breath,
take us on a journey of love!At the table of the world,
some have honour, some have scorn.
At the table of our God,
all are welcomed and acclaimed.
Blow among us, Spirit of God,
fill us with your courage and care!
Hurricane and Breath,
take us on a journey of love!Set the table of our God
in the Church and in the world,
till the children, fed and loved,
taste and see that life is good.
Blow among us, Spirit of God,
fill us with your courage and care!
Hurricane and Breath,
take us on a journey of love!

Comments About Song

BRIAN WREN
from his book “Piece Together Praise” (p 92):


“The Eucharist / Lord’s Supper’s inbuilt themes of sharing and community have been spiritualised and obscured by most Christian traditions. The text draws on the insights of Bolivian writer Rafael Avila and Sri Lankan theologian Tissa Balasuriya.”
