1 'Peace be with you all,' we sing;
peace from Christ, our Lord and king,
he it is who makes us one,
God's eternal rising Son.

2 Bound together in his name,
welded by the Spirit's flame;
at his table here we kneel
and his living presence feel.

3 Bread is broken for our food;
wine we share in gratitude.
His the flesh and blood he gave
for the world he died to save.

4 So with empty hands, we bow
to receive our saviour now
and, renewed in mind and heart,
in the peace of Christ depart.
