700. I Received the Living God

Refrain:
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.

1 Jesus said: I am the bread
kneaded long to give you life;
you who will partake of me
need not ever fear to die. (Refrain)

2 Jesus said: I am the way,
and my Father longs for you;
so I come to bring you home
to be one with us anew. (Refrain)

3 Jesus said: I am the truth;
if you follow close to me,
you will know me in your heart,
and my word shall make you free. (Refrain)

4 Jesus said: I am the life
far from whom no thing can grow,
but receive this living bread,
and my Spirit you shall know. (Refrain)
