1 Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless
Your chosen pilgrim flock
With manna in the wilderness,
With water from the rock.
2 We would not live by bread alone,
But by Your word of grace,
In strength of which we travel on
To our abiding place.
3 Be known to us in breaking bread,
But do not then depart;
Savior, abide with us, and spread
Your table in our heart.
4 Lord, sup with us in love divine;
Your Body and Your Blood,
That living bread, that heav'nly wine,
Be our immortal food.
