Hymn/Song Information

Sweet is the bread the Lord bestows




Sweet is the bread the Lord bestows,
Reward of industry and prayer;
From lawless gain small comfort flows
Attended by remorse and care.


Sweet the repose which labours bring,
When evening calls the tired to rest;
Faith takes from sorrow all its sting,
No foes alarm, no fears molest.


‘Tis sweet to know we serve the Lord,
Not men alone while here we toil;
He will our faithfulness reward,
He will upon our labour smile.


Let us be calm and active too,
Look up to God for all success;
Keep our celestial crown in view,
And cherish constant thankfulness.


Soon will the Lord our labours close
And call us to eternal day;
To realms of undisturbed repose,
To life and bliss which ne’er decay.
