Break Thou the Bread of Life

  1. Break thou the bread of life,
    dear Lord, to me,
    as thou didst break the loaves
    beside the sea;
    throughout 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. O send thy Spirit, Lord,
    now unto me,
    that he may touch mine eyes
    and make me see:
    show me the truth concealed
    within thy Word,
    and in thy Book revealed
    I see the Lord.
