O Food to Pilgrims Given

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 631
Text: Maintzich Gesangbuch; trans. by John Athelstan Laurie Riley
Music: German melody; adapt. by Heinrich Isaac; harm. by J.S. Bach
Tune: O WELT, ICH MUSS DICH LASSEN, Meter: 776 D

1. O food to pilgrims given,
O bread of life from heaven,
O manna from on high!
We hunger; Lord, supply us,
nor thy delights deny us,
whose hearts to thee draw nigh.

2. O stream of love past telling,
O purest fountain, welling
from out the Savior's side!
We faint with thirst; revive us,
of thine abundance give us,
and all we need provide.

3. O Jesus, by thee bidden,
we here adore thee, hidden
in forms of bread and wine.
Grant when the veil is risen,
we may behold, in heaven,
thy countenance divine.
