Christ is our manna true

Christ is our manna true,
Our bread of life indeed;
He's our supply of nourishment,
As on Him now we feed.
From Egypt Israel fled
Into a desert land;
Egyptian food they left behind,
And wandering began.
One day, the manna fell,
Oh, what a wondrous feat;
This was the bread the Lord had giv'n
For Israel to eat.
Unique this manna is,
It comes with morning dew;
The visit of God's grace it is,
Forever fresh and new.
God is majestic, high,
And greater than us all;
But that we may partake of Him,
In Christ, He's fine and small.
Though ground, or beat, or baked,
He's so available;
As bread and cakes and wafers fresh,
We eat Him to the full.
Manna shows Him to be
The germ of life, the seed;
'Tis God Himself sown into us,
The source of all we need.
Between the morning dew
And cold of winter snow,
This manna too is frost which kills
Things negative below.
How pure and white and clean;
In type our Christ we see;
As we digest His element,
He washes inwardly.
Manna with honey is;
Two lives this type does show;
One for the Lord's redemptive work,
And one His life to grow.
By eating more of Christ
We'll be the less opaque;
We'll then appear as bdellium,
Transparent us to make.
Lord, as we're eating here
And in the manna see
The riches of this glorious Christ,
We're filled with praise to Thee.

This hymn!!

Lord, we love You! Thank you for the process you went through to become food to us! You are the living Bread that came down from heaven. “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word became to me the gladness and joy of my heart…” (Jeremiah 15:16) Oh, Lord, that we would spend more time finding your words…forgive us for eating so many other things!

CHRIST IS OUR REAL FOOD! OUR SUPPLY OF NOURISHMENT! WE MUST EAT HIM, O saints, may we eat Him, O may we not fall short of eating Him! What else do you need or seek? HE IS THE SOURCE OF ALL WE NEED (stanza 7). We eat Him by calling upon Him, O LORD JESUS, O LORD JESUS!
