Break Thou the Bread of Life

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!

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.

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, Nw 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.

—by Mary A. Lathbury (1841–1913)

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalm 119:160
