Christify the gifts

Christify the gifts we bring to You,
bounty of the earth receive anew.
Take and bless the work of our hands.
Christify these gifts at Your command.

Sun and moon and earth and wind and rain:
all the world's contained in every grain.
All the toil and dreams of humankind,
all we are we bring as bread and wine.

Turn the bread and wine, our hearts implore,
to the living presence of the Lord.
Blessed and broken, shared with all in need;
all the hungers, sacred bread will feed.

With this bread and wine You Christify,
now our deepest thirst You satisfy.
We who by this bread You sanctify
draw the world for You to Christify.
