Break Thou the Bread of Life
Words: Mary Ann Lathbury, 1877, alt
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 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 it 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.
