Break Thou the Bread of Life

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 599
Text: Mary A. Lathbury, 1841-1913
Music: William F. Sherwin, 1826-1888
Tune: BREAD OF LIFE, Meter: 64.64 D

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.
