Bread of tears and bitter weeping:
we have known both grief and loss,
so we cry to you in sorrow,
God you know both pain and cross.

Will you leave us and forsake us?
God please listen to each prayer,
come with comfort and protection,
let us know that you are there.

We have known abuse of neighbours
and the ridicule of friends,
sometimes darkness shrouds our daylight
and it seems pain never ends.

Verse 4 follows
Tune: SERVANT SONG (Gillard)
