1 BREAK Thou the Bread of Life,
Dear Lord, to me,
As Thou didst break the bread
Beside the sea;
Beyond the sacred page
I seek Thee, Lord;
My spirit longs for Thee,
Thou living Word.

2 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.

3 Speak by 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 Thee, Lord.

4 Bless Thou the Bread of Life
To me, to me,
As Thou didst bless the loaves
By Galilee;
Then shall all bondage cease,
All fetters fall,
And I shall find my peace,
My All in all.
