More than the Printed Words by Raymond A. Foss

The printed words of the liturgy
the sharing of the body, the blood
the bread, the cup together
his offering of love

Only a moment,
not the whole story
not by far, more to tell
about the communion meal

More than the printed words
our lives of faith
sharing the liturgy,
the ancient rite
each hour, each day
in our daily lives

The way we live, as the body of Christ
individually, as a church
Doing the work of God
serving our neighbors
in offering them hope
their daily bread

The prayer our Lord taught us
a call to action in the words
to serve one another
to offer the daily bread
not merely the words
