Scripture Verse

I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst. John 6:35

If you know where to get a bet­ter pho­to of Mor­ris,


Nothing satisfies but Je­sus,
Bread of life to mortals giv’n;
May His presence now refresh us
Like the morning dew from Heav’n!


Give me Je­sus, give me Je­sus;
Take the world, but give me Je­sus;
To satisfy with every blessing,
His love and peace my soul possessing;
To all beside my heart replies:
There’s naught but Je­sus satisfies!

Since I heard the voice of Je­sus,
Since mine eyes beheld the King,
All my love, my heart’s affection,
All I have to Him I bring.


With His joy my heart is thrilling,
All my hope in Him I see;
Doubt and gloom and fear dispelling,
Christ is all in all to me!
