Lyrics:

May not my comfort cloud my eyes
to see the needy at my door.
But, poor in spirit, may I rise,
and feast on mercy with the poor.

Poor Christ, I confess: I cling to all I posses.
With grace, open my eyes to see the poor
who bear your image to my door.

My my privilege and place
not blind me to my need for grace.
With empty hands I come, for I am sure
with grace, O God, you feed the poor.

As one who by your hand is fed
I hunger now to share your bread,
to see that justice for the poor is done,
for at your table we are one.
