This song is included in our “Contentment Calamity” Christmas Cantata.
Listen to Audio Samples HERE.
Quite obvious to all is a hungry stomach’s call
As it craves for a satisfying bite.
But food from a buffet cannot fill you all the way
When you’ve ignored your soul’s appetite!
Give me a hearty helping of instruction,
Give me a daily dose of doctrine on my plate,
Give me a sizable spoonful of correction
That will surely help to set me straight!
With wisdom, fill my platter, with knowledge, fill my bowl.
Oh, Christian, do you know, do you know
That the Bible is a feast for the soul?
How impossible to eat only one day a week
And full expect your body to survive.
So Sunday’s sermon alone with no Scripture at home
Is not sufficient seven-day supply!
Just like a newborn baby, who for milk will cry
A Christian should be craving for the Bible lest he die!… lest he die!
