"Feed Thy Children, God Most Holy"
By Johann Heermann, 1585-1647
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
Feed Thy children, God most holy,
Comfort sinners poor and lowly;
O Thou Bread of Life from heaven,
Bless the food Thou here hast given!
As these gifts the body nourish,
May our souls in graces flourish
Till with saints in heavenly splendor
At Thy feast due thanks we render.
