Break Thou the Bread of Life

Lyrics ~ Mary Ann Lathbury, 1841-1913

Music ~ William F. Sherwin, 1826-1888

Stanza 1:

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!

Stanza 2:

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.

Stanza 3:

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.
