Bread Of Heaven On Thee We Feed Lyrics
Bread of heaven, on thee I feed,
For Thy flesh is meat indeed:
Ever may my soul be fed
With this true and living bread;
Day by day with strength supplied
Through the life of Him who died.
Vine of heaven, Thy blood supplies
This blest cup of sacrifice:
‘Tis Thy wounds my healing give;
To Thy ...
Thine for ever! God of love,
Hear us from thy throne above;
Thine forever may we be
Here and in eternity.
Thine for ever! Lord of life,
Shield us through our earthly strife;
Thou, the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Guide us to the realms of day.
Thine for ever! O how blest
They who find in thee their rest!
Saviour, Guardian, heavenly Friend,
O defend ...
