[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
Having fasted, Jesus, hungry
heard the tempter tell him to
‘Turn the stones to bread, for You are
God the Son, so this now do!’
Jesus, quoting from the scripture;
‘Man lives not on only bread,
but on every Word God uttered.’
– Read His Words, your souls well fed.
Times of famine are great hardship –
times for sending caring aid.
But when famine of the hearing
of God’s Word, be more dismayed.
