Not By Bread Alone
The greatest blessings in our lives...
The abundant joy we've known,
The peace and love within our hearts,
Do not come by bread alone.
The material things we possess...
The money, houses and land,
Are just trinkets upon life's shore,
Soon blown away in the sand.
But the true riches of God's grace
Remain forever our own...
Abundant life, joy, peace and love,
Are given by Christ alone.
Mere bread could never satisfy
The hunger within our hearts,
Nor could those things which we possess
Give the joy our Lord imparts.
He sends down manna from heaven,
As God's Word in us is sown,
Feeding our souls forevermore...
We live...Not By Bread Alone.
Jesus said: "...It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."
