Bread of Life

7205988_s
I am the bread of life
enough for today
I am your bread for tomorrow
I’m here to stay
I am the bread that was broken,
the Lamb who was slain
I am the Victor, the King,
the flour, the grain.

Give me a little yeast
and a measure of time
such is the Kingdom of God
by descending, you’ll climb.
I am the bread that was broken
to make one loaf
out of the myriad nations.
Through death comes growth.

I am the bread of life
enough for your needs
I am food both for the hungry
and him who feeds.
I am the bread that was broken
to make the world whole.
I am the peace you receive
which abides in your soul.

I am the bread that was given,
I gave it myself
I gave it for all my disciples,
even the twelfth,
I poured out my life
like a cup of wine on the ground
and claimed back the dust that was lost
and declared it found.

I am the bread of life
enough for today
I am your bread forever,
the truth, the way.
I am the power of life
no one can destroy.
I am salvation,
abundantly full of joy.
