Christ My Song - 2040
I hunger and I thirst - Holy Communion
(John S. B. Monsell/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"I am my Beloved's, and my Beloved is mine:
he feedeth me among the lilies." (Song of Solomon 6,3)
2. Thou bruised and broken Bread!
my life-long wants supply,
as living souls are fed
O feed me, or I die.
3. Thou true Life-giving Vine!
let me thy sweetness prove,
renew my life with thine,
refresh my soul with love.
4. Rough paths my feet have trod
since first their course began;
feed me, thou Bread of God!
help me, thou Son of Man!
5. For still the desert lies
my thirsting soul before,
O living Waters! rise
within me evermore.
John S. B. Monsell, Hymns of Love and Praise, 1877, 128-129.
