Suggested Tune DIDEMATA (

1.  Hungry, they gathered round;
hung on His every word.
For scores among them knew they'd found
their long awaited Lord.
The hunger in their souls,
their longing for His truth,
was greater than their earthly goals
and hunger for mere food.


2.  I would be hungry too,
devouring every word
as it proceeds to me from You
through Holy Spirit's sword.
Come feed me, bread of Life,
Unfold your ways for me.
For you alone can satisfy,
Make me what I should be.


3.  Still hungry crowds we see:
"They need not go away,"
You told us, "Bring them here to me!"
We'll bring them, Lord, in faith.
We'll not turn them away,
We'll bring our fish and bread:
All that we have is yours to take
so hungry souls are fed.
