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. Thou art the bread of life, O Lord to me,
Thy holy Word the trust that saveth me.
Give me to eat and live with Thee in love;
Teach me to love Thy truth, for Thou art love.
4. O send Thy Spirit, Lord, now unto me,
that it 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.
