“This is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.”

The Lord gave them bread from heaven.

The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower;
all who come to him will live for ever.

Again, reading our reading’s for Mass this morning, something came into my mind.  The Catholic church has a beautiful hymn that I believe captures everything that we will read this morning.  I want to share the beauty of this hymn with you today.

i AM THE BREAD OF LIFE

I am the Bread of life,
He who comes to Me shall not hunger,
He who believes in Me shall not thirst.
No one can come to Me
Unless the Father draw him.

And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.

The bread that I will give
Is My flesh for the life of the world,
And he who eats of this bread,
He shall live for ever,
He shall live for ever.

And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.

Unless you eat
Of the flesh of the Son of Man
And drink of His blood,
And drink of His blood,
You shall not have life within you.

And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life,
He who believes in Me
Even if he die,
He shall live for ever.

And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.

Yes, Lord, we believe
That You are the Christ,
The Son of God
Who has come
Into the world.

And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.

Do something great for our Lord today – let God, the sower, plant Christ, the seed, deep inside you so that you may always have faith; that you may always believe.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

He must increase; I must decrease.
