Say Grace

Supplicant:

Hungry and thirsty for healing
Feed my gnawing feelings
Or take them away
Or take me away
I’m wasting away
…But I’m still breathing

Officiant:

You, my child, I will feed by my hand
Health will course in your veins
Secret manna, sustaining love
Then rest, and time to digest

Supplicant:

If I let go hunger and hurting
If my heart is defrosting
Afraid of myself
Afraid of the lies
Afraid of the truth
…Truth may be my undoing

Officiant:

You, my bride, sit at my right hand
I’m sharing with you this day
A marriage feast, eternal love
Then rest, and time to digest

Amen

Jeff Jenkins – With longsuffering thanks to @kitten_mischief – You will find the secret manna!
