1 Break now the bread of life, dear Lord, to me,
as thou didst breaj 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 Thou art the bread of life, O Lord, to me,
thy holy Word the truth that saveth me;
give me to eat and live with thee above;
teach me to love thy truth, for thou are love.

4 O send thy Spirit,Lord, now unto me,
that he may touch my eyes and make me see:
show me the truth concealed within thy Word,
and in thy book revealed I see thee, Lord.
