holy communion

{ I have received the Living Bread
and my heart is filled with joy. {2}

He says to me: “I am the bread which I give
to feed your soul; he who eats of this my flesh,
will attain the heavenly goal.”

He says to me: “I am the vine which will
nourish every shoot, as it feeds upon my sap,
it will give abundant fruit.”

He says to me: “I am the life which destroys
eternal doom; whosoever lives in me
will rise like me from the tomb.”

He says to me: “I am the Way where my Father
waits for you; if you follow in my steps,
you will see me with him too.”
