The Evangeliad (19:42-45)


Section 19:42-45 (corresponding to John 6:48-51)

"For I am the bread of life," Jesus said,
"Your fathers all by manna were fed
As they wandered in deserts in Moses' day,
Yet all have died and were set in their graves.

But eat of the heavenly bread, and then
Death cannot hold you ever again!
I am the bread of life, that very bread
Which came from heaven, that the world might be fed.

And whoever takes this bread and would eat,
They will find life, everlasting and free!
This bread is my flesh, and this I shall give
For the life of the world: so come, eat, and live!"
