I Am the Bread of Life

Sr. Suzanne Toolan RSM

1. I am the Bread of life.

You who come to me shall not hunger;

and who believe in me shall not thirst.

No one can come to me

unless the Father beckons.


And I will raise you up,

and I will raise you up,

and I will raise you up

on the last day.

2. The bread that I will give

is my flesh for the life of the world,

and if you eat of this bread,

you shall live forever,

you shall live forever.

3. 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.

4. I am the Resurrection, I am the life.

If you believe in me,

even though you die,

you shall live forever.

5. Yes, Lord, we believe

that you are the Christ,

the Son of God,

who has come into the world.
