Bread of Life in the House of Bread




Bethlehem, thou Bethlehem
House of Bread
Within your walls, the Bread of life rests His lowly head
With His truth, the hunger of our spirit will be fed
In Bethlehem

Bethlehem, thou Bethlehem
House of Bread
To your doors the ancient words of prophecy have led
Call the weary pilgrim in, the banquet feast is spread
In Bethlehem

Honor stands upon your name
How beautiful, how right
This Child, the Bread of life
Should grace your gates tonight

Bethlehem, thou Bethlehem
House of Bread
Your heritage is woven with a single golden thread
Shining through the centuries, our hungry hearts have sped
To the child of Bethlehem

Honor stands upon your name
How beautiful, how right
This child, the Bread of life
Should grace your gates tonight

Bethlehem, thou Bethlehem
House of bread
Bethlehem, thou Bethlehem
House of bread
