This lovely hymn was written by Dan Schutte for the ordination of a deacon, while he was studying at the Jesuit School of Theology. He was asked to include in the lyrics images of “God’s word", "Jesus as the light", and "the bread and wine of the eucharist". And all this on very short notice! Needless to say – he rose to the challenge, and this has become a favorite hymn of many.
