Break Thou the Bread of Life

Break Thou the Bread of Life,
Dear Lord to me,
As thou didst break the loaves
  G    D    G
Beside the sea;
 G7        C
Beyond the sacred page
 F           G
I seek Thee, Lord;
Am        Dm
My spirit pants for Thee,
    G    C
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.
