135. Cast Thy Bread upon the Water

1 Cast thy bread upon the water,
’Twill return in many days;
Crumbs of truth for Jesus scatter,
All along thy pilgrim ways.

Refrain:
Cast thy bread upon the water,
It will soon return again;
Cast thy bread upon the water,
Jesus says ’tis not in vain.

2 Cast thy bread upon the water,
Christ will watch the rolling wave,
As it ripples slowly onward,
To the soul He seeks to save. [Refrain]

3 Cast thy bread upon the water,
Let it spread from pole to pole;
And the prayers of patient toilers
Soon will yield some precious soul. [Refrain]

4 Cast thy bread upon the water,
Trusting it is not in vain,
For the lost and wand’ring sinner
May be gathered back again. [Refrain]
