Grade 3-6 Children’s Choir (or ANY age choir) for unison or two-part treble voices, (optional) violin and piano (or harp)
Text: Carol McClure
Vocal Range: d to d’
Key: D minor/D Mixolyydian
Meter: 6/8

Description: Bread of Love, Cup of Grace is based on a simple, folk-like melody with lyrical accompaniment. The refrain, which opens the anthem, is memorable enough to be immediately singable by the entire congregation, should you want them to join in singing the final refrain.

Teaching Guide

  • Teach the choristers to sing a D Mixolydian “scale”.
  • Teach the choristers to chant the words in rhythm.
  • Teach the choristers to sing the melody on the syllable “loo” (without piano).
  • Teach each phrase with text and melody together, emphasizing breath support.

Bread of love, Cup of grace,
Broken and offered by Christ our Lord;
Bread of love, Cup of grace,
Bring us together with Christ, face to face.

Come to the table prepared for all those who believe;
Here at the table are places for all who receive God’s grace.

Bread of love, Cup of grace,
Broken and offered by Christ our Lord;
Bread of love, Cup of grace,
Bring us together with Christ, face to face.

Open your hands to join hands with all those in this place;
Open your heart to take part as we share in this Feast of Grace.

Bread of love, Cup of grace,
Broken and offered by Christ our Lord;
Bread of love, Cup of grace,
Bring us together with Christ, face to face.
Bring us together with Christ, face to face.
Bring us together with Christ, face to face.
