Damaged (#2 of 2 linked prayers)

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life
(John 6:54; NIV).

1. Lord, we are
Your intricate creation,
Hurt by life in body
And in mind;

2. Damaged, Lord, in heart,
And soul, and spirit,
Which makes us frail, deaf,
Captive, lame, and blind.

3. But every time we take the Host
You heal us:
Bit by bit
You set us free, dear Lord;

4. And every time we share the Cup
You fill us:
Drop by drop,
Until we are restored.
