Living Bread – Communion Song

I wrote this song a year ago and have sung it on numerous occasions during the taking of Communion in the church service. The song comes from the passage in John chapter 6 where Jesus describes Himself as the living bread who came from heaven. Many disciples turned away from following Him when He said that they must partake of His body and blood. It says in verse 6 that Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Indeed the path of following Jesus is a narrow and painful one but where else would we go? Jesus has the Words of eternal life!

CCLI# 7207806


Living bread You came from heaven
Holy and anointed One
Spotless Lamb Your body broken
Bruised and beaten God’s own Son

Your blood poured out the cup of suffering
Cleansing power to wash my sin
I long for you, Your living waters
Spirit breathe Your life within

And Lord, the way of the cross
Is painful and narrow
Yet Lord I will follow You
And Lord I would not go away
For where else would I stay
You have the words of eternal life
