Bread of the World


Reginald Heber’s classic communion text comes alive in this stirring musical setting. The simple soprano melody (optional solo) that begins the piece blossoms into a rich choral texture which is supported by the flowing piano accompaniment.

Bread of the world in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul in mercy shed,
By whom the words of life were spoken,
And in whose death our sins are dead:

Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
Look on the tears by sinners shed;
And be Thy feast to us the token
That by Thy grace our souls are fed.
