For Bread and Breath of Life

“For Bread and Breath of Life,” New Era, Aug. 1980, 40

For Bread and Breath of Life

First-Place Hymn

1. Our God who flamed within a tree

And spoke the law to shape our way,

We consecrate this hour to thee

And ask thy hearing as we pray.

2. Our Brother nailed up on a tree,

We eat and drink, and view thy death,

And live thy law in love, that we

May all be quickened by thy breath.
