The Upper Room



Come to the upper room.
The bread of His suffering
is laid out on the table.
The wine of your joy     
is poured out for all.

Come and sit by Him.
Bring your denials
and your betrayals.
Bring all that you are
and all that you strive to be.

Come to the upper room.
This bread of the Passover
is broken for you.
Its substance has taken you
from the land of slavery 
to a land of plenty.

Come and sit by Him.
Share this bread of a new promise.
Share this bread of His being.
Broken,
for all who are called
to be children of His father.
