85. Shepherd of Souls, Refresh and Bless

1 Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless
your chosen pilgrim flock
with manna in the wilderness,
with water from the rock.

2 We would not live by bread alone,
but by your word of grace,
in strength of which we travel on
to our abiding place.

3 Be known to us in breaking bread,
but do not then depart;
Saviour, abide with us, and spread
your table in our heart.

4 Lord, sup with us in love divine,
your body and your blood,
that living bread, that heavenly wine,
be our immortal food.
