With just two fish and just two loaves of bread,
disciples fed the crowd by Jesus hand –
the multitudes of people satisfied
at His command.
The ancient day is yet the same today
with baskets holding blessings by His call,
the greening grass and miracles beheld
for one and all.
“And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.”
