Feed Body and Soul

‘It would not be right for us

To neglect the word of God

So as to give out food’

Both are needed

Vital for our good

The wheat fields of Ukraine

Bread baskets of the world

Bring flour to my table

This very day

 

I love my daily bread

Two kinds I make

My mother’s soda

And machine made ready bake

The miller gives me flour

My mother showed me how

And daily bread sustains

My waking hour

 

And another bread is needed

If I am to live

I am the living bread

The word of God

So many vie to speak with us

To tell us how it is

The gently spoken gospel

True nourishment it is
