The Daily Bread

The Daily Bread

The Lord has brought forth the table
from the wood carried on His back
in order to prepare a feast
with the ingredients of a master chef
in knowing how to fulfill ones appetite
would you sit down at the chair
for the Lord has hand crafted 
each individual person a seat
woe to those who push it away
for without this menu one shall starve
their soul to be withered by dust
as mud poured out on hot pavement
Only by the bread of the Lord
shall we be ingested with living nutrients
which brings forth knowledge and life
to seek out each day to press on 
for this bread will begin
to be manufactured within 
if we allow Him to set up inside
The Lord has presented water
to allow one to drink from the cup 
flowing out His body
which is fed from the living springs
that flows from above
no one shall thirst that drinks
for it shall bring one wisdom and guidance
to walk in the lighted path
Give us Lord our daily bread
that was poured down from heaven
with a purpose to help, to heal,
and to point us to the Almighty Father
that we may submit and bury the old self
and be a vessel for the Lord
to tell the Good News so that people
could share in Christ’s glory
