In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Lyrics
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!

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.

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 the Lord.

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 art Love.

Teach me to live, dear Lord,
Only for Thee,
As Thy disciples lived
In Galilee;
Then, all my struggles o'er,
Then, vict'ry won,
I shall behold Thee, Lord,
The Living One.
