  1. 1.You hand-feed your people with food for angels,
    heavenʼs bread: ready to eat.
    You hand-feed your people with food for angels,
    richly satisfying, pleasing to every taste.

Eating this bread, we taste your sweetness,
the perfect meal for our deepest hunger and hope;
this is our heavenʼs bread.
Eating this bread, we taste your sweetness,
the perfect meal for our deepest hunger and hope.
You are our heavenʼs bread.

  1. 2.The children you love, Lord, will surely learn this:
    it is your word that feeds and preserves,
    it is your word, not the bounty of fruits,
    that feeds and preserves your own faithful ones.
