1 The bread that giveth strength I want to give,
The water pure that bids the thirsty live;
I want to help the fainting day by day,
I'm sure I shall not pass again this way.

2 I want to give the oil of joy for tears,
The faith to conquer crowding doubts and fears;
Beauty for ashes may I give alway,
I'm sure I shall not pass again this way.

3 I want to give good measure, running o'er,
And into angry hearts I want to pour
The answer soft that turneth wrath away,
I'm sure I shall not pass again this way.

4 I want to give to others hope and faith;
I want to do all that the Master saith;
I want to live aright from day by day;
I'm sure I shall not pass again this way.
