Sheet Music:




Break thou the bread of life,
dear Lord, to me
As thou did break the loaves
beside the sea;
Throughout 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 did bless the bread
by Galilee;
Then shall all bondage cease,
All fetters fall;
And I shall find my peace,
my All in 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.

O send thy Spirit Lord,
now unto me
That He may touch my eyes
and make me see:
Show me the truth revealed
Within thy Word,
And in thy light I'll see
my gracious Lord.

Yes, in thy light I see
my gracious Lord. love.
