     30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. 31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. 33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him. 34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things. 35 And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed: 36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. 37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? 38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. 39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. 40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. 42 And they did all eat, and were filled. 43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. 44 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.(KJV)

1. Oh, bless the Lord, my soul! 
Let all within me join 
And aid my tongue to bless His name 
Whose favors are divine. 

2. Oh, bless the Lord, my soul, 
Nor let His mercies lie 
Forgotten in unthankfulness 
And without praises die! 

3. ‘Tis He forgives thy sins; 
‘Tis He relieves thy pain; 
‘Tis He that heals thy sicknesses 
And makes thee young again. 

4. He crowns thy life with love 
When ransomed from the grave; 
He that redeemed my soul from hell 
Hath sovereign power to save. 

5. He fills the poor with good; 
He gives the sufferers rest: 
The Lord hath judgments for the proud 
And justice for th’ opprest. 

6. His wondrous works and ways 
He made by Moses known, 
But sent the world His truth and grace 
By His beloved Son.
