Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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! 

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.

3.	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. 

4.	O send Thy Spirit, Lord, now unto me, 
	That He may touch mine eyes, and make me see; 
	Show me the truth concealed within Thy Word, 
	And in Thy Book revealed I see Thee, Lord.
