321. Break Thou the Bread of Life

1 Break thou the bread of life,
dear Lord, to me,
as thou didst break the loaves
beside the sea;
beyond the sacred page
I seek thee, Lord,
my spirit pants for thee,
O living Word.

2 Bless thou the truth, dear Lord,
to me, to me,
as thou didst bless the bread
by Galilee;
then shall all bondage cease,
all fetters fall;
and I shall find my peace,
my all in all.

3 O send thy Spirit, Lord,
now unto me,
touch thou my longing eyes
that I may see;
give me to eat and live
with thee above;
teach me to love thy truth,
for thou art love.
