The Lord’s Word should make you long for the Lord’s presence

Did you met the Lord in his Word yesterday? Did this encounter make you long to see him face-to-face?

I pray thee, merciful Jesus,

that as thou has graciously granted me to drink deeply and sweetly from the word which tells of thee;

so wilt thou of thy goodness grant that I may come at length to thee, the fountain of all wisdom, and stand before thy face forever.

– Bede (c. 673-735)

Break thou the Bread of Life, dear Lord, to me

As thou didst break the loaves beside the sea

Beyond the sacred page, I seek Thee, Lord

My spirit pants for thee, O Living Word

– “Break Thou the Bread of Life” (1877)
