10 I Am The Bread

The greatest hunger in the world today, according to Mother Theresa, is the hunger for Christ.

And part of that hunger is the need to know our real identities as children of God, and sisters and brothers of each other.

1st capo Em (Fm)

Fm

I am the bread to feed the world

Bbm C7

I am the fire that's never cold,

Fm

I am the hope of a dying world,

C7 Fm

Turn to me my children

Fm

I am the friend they've never known,

Bbm C7

I am the balm to soothe their souls

Fm

I am the wealth they long to own

C7 Fm

Turn to me my children.

Bbm Fm

There's a hungry world who don't know me

C7 Fm C7 Fm

A crying world doesn't know I care

Bbm Fm

I can see all their faces so lonely

C7 Fm

~ Who'll go to them?

(Repeat verse 1)

Bbm Fm

Look at the fear on their faces

C7 Fm C7 Fm

Look at the envy and discontent,

Bbm Fm

Watch their scurrying paces,

C7 Fm

~ Who'll go to them?

Fm

I am the God who loves the poor,

Bbm C7

And mine is the anger at those who never care,

Fm

Blindness is no excuse for you,

C7 Fm

You'd better turn to me my children.(Rpt v 1)
