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 truth That saveth me;
    Give me to eat and live With Thee above;
    Teach me to love Thy truth, For Thou art love.
  4. Spirit and life are they, Words Thou dost speak;
    I hasten to obey, But I am weak;
    Thou art my only help, Thou art my life;
    Heeding Thy holy Word I win the strife.
