Take Our Bread We Ask You

Words by Joseph Wise

This hymn is suitable as the third hymn sung after the signing of the register, which usually speaks of the desire that God goes with you into the future to help you live out your vows. It is also suitable to sing during Communion, if you decide to include it during the ceremony, and also at Easter weddings.

Take our bread, we ask you,
Take our hearts, we love you,
Take our lives, oh Father,
We are yours, we are yours.

Yours as we stand at the table you set,
Yours as we eat the bread our hearts can’t forget.
We are the signs of your life with us yet;
We are yours, we are yours.


Your holy people stand washed in your blood,
Spirit filled, yet hungry, we await your food.
Poor thought we are, we have brought
Ourselves to you:
We are yours, we are yours.

  1. The hymn “Take our Bread” is NOT suitable for a wedding unless you are having a full Nuptial mass. This is a Communion hymn and is about the couple receiving communion, in other words the Body and Blood of Christ.
