He gave Himself; now He provides Himself.
Christ is the substance of all that nourishes
Those who are His and whom He cherishes;
He is the Manna which graciously descends,
Fine, granular, upon the wilderness
Sustaining where conditions are adverse.
The Old Corn of the Land is nourishment
Within the realm where He Himself has led
Outwith the power and influence of death.
For all His own He is the living Bread:
Souls only who have fed upon His flesh
And drunk His blood have life within themselves.
