HOW MANY LOAVES?

Miracles can happen in a moment
Unexpected grace calls us to care                         
When one boy says that he will share
The rest bring out what they’ve hidden there
And there’re baskets of bounty everywhere

How many loaves, how many fishes
Do we have amongst us here today?
Gifts of love are not just spoken
Bread is life when bread is broken
The sharing of our bread is where we’re saved

How can we pray with bread upon the table
(The table of the Lord)
And not remember those who are not fed?
(The children of the world)
This is not a time for prayers and wishes
This is time for loaves and fishes
Justice is another word for bread

You came to nourish what is living
To speak the word of love that was unheard
You broke the law, You healed the broken
We break the bread to keep your word

Around the world, how many children?
How many gravestones for the hungry dead?
When one child says that she will share
The rest bring out what they’ve hidden there
And baskets of bounty everywhere
