Bread of heaven, on Thee we feed

Bread of heaven, on Thee we feed,
For Thy Flesh is Meat indeed:
Ever may our souls be fed
With this true and living bread;
Day by day with strength supplied,
Through the life of Him Who died.

Springs and Streams No Longer Bless

Springs and streams no longer bless
All the dry and thirsty land;
Fertile fields in verdant dress
God converts to desert sand;
For that they who dwell therein
Turn to wickedness and sin.
