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. Lord Jesus Christ, Thou living Bread, 
May I for mine possess Thee. 
I would with heavenly food be fed; 
Descend, refresh, and bless me. 
Now make me meet for Thee, O Lord; 
Now, humbly by my heart implored, 
Grant me Thy grace and mercy. 

2. Thou me to pastures green dost guide, 
To quiet waters lead me; 
Thy table Thou dost well provide 
And from Thy hand dost feed me. 
Sin, weakness, and infirmity 
Am I; O Savior, give to me 
The cup of Thy salvation. 

3. O Bread of heaven, my soul’s Delight, 
For full and free remission 
With prayer I come before Thy sight, 
In sorrow and contrition. 
With faith adorn my soul that I 
May to Thy table now draw nigh 
With Thine own preparation. 

4. I merit not Thy favor, Lord, 
Sin now upon me lieth; 
Beneath my burden, self-abhorred, 
To Thee my spirit crieth. 
In all my grief this comforts me, 
That Thou on sinners graciously, 
Lord Jesus, hast compassion.
