Bread for the Journey

1 Give us bread for the journey. Give us bread.
Give us bread for the journey. Give us bread.
When our feet are getting heavy
And we’re hanging down our heads,
Give us bread for the journey. Give us bread.

2 Guide our way as we travel. Guide our way.
Guide our way as we travel. Guide our way.
With so many roads before us,
Where to go is hard to say.
Guide our way as we travel. Guide our way.

3 Make us one with each other. Make us one.
Make us one with each other. Make us one.
All the walls we’ve built around us
May we learn to tear them down.
Make us one with each other. Make us one.

4 Lead us home to the garden. Lead us home.
Lead us home to the garden. Lead us home.
Where we’ll live with all creation,
Find our place and never roam.
Lead us home to the garden. Lead us home.

5 Give us bread for the journey. Give us bread.
Give us bread for the journey. Give us bread.
When our feet are getting heavy
And we’re hanging down our heads,
Give us bread for the journey. Give us bread.
