Bread of our souls, whereon we feed,

True manna from on high;
Our guide and chart, wherein we read

Of realms beyond the sky;

3
Pillar of fire, through watches dark,

And radiant cloud by day;
When waves would whelm our tossing bark,

Our anchor and our stay;

4
Word of the ever-living God,

Will of His glorious Son,-
Without Thee, how could earth be trod,

Or heaven itself be won ?

5
Lord, grant us all aright to learn

The wisdom it imparts,
And to its heavenly teaching turn

With simple, childlike hearts. Amen.

Here may the blind and hungry come,

And light and food receive;
Here shall the lowliest guest have room,

And taste and see and live.

3
Here springs of consolation rise

To cheer the fainting mind,
And thirsting souls receive supplies,

And sweet refreshment find.

4
Here the Redeemer's welcome voice

Spreads heavenly peace around,
And life and everlasting joys

Attend the blissful sound.

5
O may these heavenly pages be

My ever dear delight,
And still new beauties may I see,

And still increasing light.

6
Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,

Be Thou for ever near;
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word,

And view my Saviour here. Amen.

O make Thy Church, dear Saviour,

A lamp of burnished gold,
To bear before the nations

Thy true light, as of old.
O teach Thy wandering pilgrims

By this their path to trace
Till, clouds and darkness ended,
They see Thee face to face. Amen.

Thy body, broken for my sake,

My bread from heaven shall be:
Thy testamental cup I take,
And thus remember Thee.

3
Gethsemane can I forget ?

Or there Thy conflict see,
Thine agony and bloody sweat,

And not remember Thee ?

4
When to the cross I turn mine eyes,

And rest on Calvary,
O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,

I must remember Thee:

5
Remember Thee, and all thy pains,

And all Thy love to me;
Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains,

Will I remember Thee.

6
And when these failing lips grow dumb,

And mind and memory flee,
When Thou shalt in Thy kingdom come,
Then, Lord, remember me. Amen.
