Break now the bread of life, dear Lord, for me,
Just as You broke the loaves beside the sea;
You are the Feast the Bible’s leading toward:
The Spirit of the letters—living Word!
Bless now the truth, dear Lord, to me—
Just as you blessed the bread by Galilee;
And fill my hungry soul with every bite;
Till holiness consumes my appetite.
You are the sweetest wine, O Lord, to me!
Your goodness, even now, I taste and see!
But more my heart desires, and more I crave:
I’ve sipped the cup—now drown me in the wave!
Please send Your Spirit, Lord, now unto me,
A cloud by day and fire by night is He!
A Helper through the winding wilderness:
Through all the journey long, my Sabbath rest.
