Hymn/Song Information

Break Thou the bread of life dear Lord




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.


Break Thou the bread of life,
O Lord, to me,
That hid within my heart
Thy word may be:
Mould Thou each inward thought,
From self set free,
And let my steps be all
Controlled by Thee.


Open Thy words of truth
That I may see
Thy message written clear
And plain for me;
Then, in sweet fellowship,
Walking with Thee,
Thine image on my life
Engraved will be.


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,
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.


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.

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!
