Nourished By the Master

"Meanwhile the disciples besought him, saying, 'Rabbi, eat.' But he said to them, 'I have food to eat of which you do not know.' So the disciples said to one another, 'Has any one brought him food?' Jesus said to them, 'My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to accomplish his work.'" 1

Sustain Me, Lord

Sustain me, Lord, You are the Word
Which frees my mind and heart from sin.
Sustain me, Lord, You are the Bread
Which nourishes new life within.

Sustain me, Lord, Yours is the love
Which purifies me in its fire.
Sustain me, Lord, Yours is the grace
Which sanctifies and lifts me high'r.

Sustain me, Lord, Yours is the will
Which provides for my needs each day.
Sustain me, Lord, Yours is the truth
Which shines on me and lights my way.

Sustain me, Lord, Yours is the hope
Which anchors my security.
Sustain me, Lord, Yours is the faith
Which draws me to eternity.

You nourish me and make me whole;
Sustaining me deep in my soul.
