Gift of Finest Wheat (You Satisfy the Hungry Heart)

You satisfy the hungry heart
with gift of finest wheat,

come give to us o saving Lord,
the bread of life to eat.
As when the shepherd calls his sheep,
they know and heed his voice;
so when You call Your family Lord,
we follow and rejoice. (Refrain)

With joyful lips we sing to You,
Our praise and gratitude,
that You should count us worthy Lord,
to share this heavenly food. (Refrain)

Is not the cup we bless and share,
the blood of Christ outpoured?
Do not one cup, one loaf declare
Our oneness in the Lord? (Refrain)

The mystery of Your presence Lord,
no mortal tongue can tell;
whom all the world cannot contain
comes in our hearts to dwell. (Refrain)

You give yourself to us o Lord,
then selfless let us be,
to serve each other in Your name
in truth and charity. (Refrain)

Words: Omer Westendorf (1977)
Music: Robert E. Kreutz (1977)
