Only Bread

I was so very hungry
I just wanted to be fed
I looked at all the tables
And noticed one small setting
Had only simple bread

The others were quite splendid
All luxuriously spread
Every meat and sweet delight
Food to fill the stomach
Drinks to swill the head

I sat down at the feast
Where my appetites had led
Why should I settle for
A table that had nothing
But simple bread

I ate and ate and ate
Never felt full, but instead
My hunger only increased
Feeling nauseous yet still hungry
Ignoring that simple bread

And so the world allures me
Just as the Lord has said
He who dines with Me
Will never hunger
Taste of My simple bread

I Am Life and I Am light
It was for you that I have bled
I alone can fill your hunger
Eat of Me and live
Taste of My simple bread

John 6:35Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Isaiah 55:2 Come, all of you who thirst, come to the waters; and you without money, come, buy, and eat! Come, buy wine and milk, without money and without cost! 2Why spend money on that which is not bread, and your labor on that which does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of foods.
