Break thou the bread of life

Break thou the bread of life,
O Lord, to me,
as thou didst break the loaves
beside the sea.
Beyond the sacred page
I seek thee Lord;
my spirit longs for thee,
O living Word!

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 the 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.

verses 1 and 4, Mary Artemesia Lathbury, (1841-1913);
verses 2 and 3, Alexander Groves (1842-1909)
