“Bread of the World”
Words by Reginald Heber (verse 1) and Stephen McNeill (verses 2 and 3)
Music by Stephen McNeill
Bread of the world in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul in mercy shed,
by whom the words of life were spoken,
and in whose death our sins are dead:
look on the hearts by sorrow broken;
look on the tears by sinners shed;
So may your feast become the token
that by your grace our souls are fed.
Fullness of God in flesh descended,
Hope of the world, Emmanuel,
who, as a man, was tried and tempted,
who knows our every weakness well:
look on the souls by grief afflicted;
look on those trusting sin's dark spell;
In you may our escape be granted
to quench our thirst at mercy's well.
Radiant Lamb who reigns victorious,
Marvelous King enthroned in light,
who conquered sin and death and darkness,
whose humbleness displayed his might:
look on the fields now white for harvest;
look on your long expectant bride;
Oh, may your kingdom come among us
And bring us rest on every side.
