In the Breaking of the Bread [Song]

The short, memorable refrain takes its text from the account of the Road to Emmaus {Luke 24:25}. The seven short verses come from the Communion Antiphons for the Sundays of Easter. Although particularly suitable during Eastertide, or when the journey to Emmaus is featured in the Gospel, this is a great Communion processional song for any occasion (outside of Lent).


In the breaking of the bread,
we knew him, Lord Jesus.
Alleluia, Alleluia

Were not our hearts burning as he spoke?
Were not our hearts, yearning for the Word of God?

Put your hand here, see the place of nails.
Blessed are those who have not seen, but believe.
