1 FOuntain of all the Good we see
2 Streaming from Heav'n above,
3 Saviour! our Faith we act on Thee,
4 And exercise our Love.
5 'Tis not the Outward Food we eat
6 Doth this new Strength afford,
7 'Tis Thou, whose Presence makes it Meat,
8 Thou the Life-giving Word.
9 Man doth not live by Bread alone,
10 Whate'er Thou wilt can feed;
11 Thy Power converts the Bread to Stone,
12 And turns the Stone to Bread.
13 Thou art our Food: we taste Thee now,
14 In Thee we move and breath,
15 Our Bodies' only Life art Thou,
16 And all besides is Death!
