Bread Enough


"Jesus is the Bread of Life..."

Are You

Bread Enough for me?

Will You come and meet

My every need?


Bread of Life

Sustain me now,

Come fill my every

Hunger somehow.


The loneliness, longing

Soul hunger and thirst,

Help me turn to You only

And seek You first.


When I’m troubled, tormented

Or fearful and afraid,

It’s Your solitude and

Peace that I crave.


Should pain and sickness

Or sorrow and grief,

Tug at my soul

I need Your relief.


Are You

Bread Enough for me?

Will You come and meet

My every need?


Bread of Life

Sustain me now,

Come fill my every

Hunger somehow.


When my soul is empty

Or bored at best,

When I’m weary, exhausted,

Confused and need rest.


Should I feel like

An orphaned child,

Come hold me tender

And close for a while.


Should I feel

Abandoned, insecure, and unloved,

Come meet that need

Reach down from above.


Are You

Bread Enough for me?

Will You come and meet

My every need?


Bread of Life

Sustain me now,

Come fill my every

Hunger somehow.


Come fill this craving

And gnawing of soul,

Come fill me up

And make me whole.


Manna from Heaven

You promised the best,

I need not seek fulfillment

From all of the rest.


Living Bread from Heaven

The true Bread of Life,

Fill me up

Come satisfy.


Hungry to know

I’m loved and belong,

Affirmation and attention

For so much I long.


Thirsty for touch

And for real affection,

Needy to know

Worth and validation.


Desiring to taste

Real meaning in life,

And Your purposes

At work even in strife.


Are You

Bread Enough for me?

Will You come and meet

My every need?


Bread of Life

Sustain me now,

Come fill my every

Hunger somehow.



"He is Bread enough to meet every need..."
