I Received the Living God

Full Text

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;
come and 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]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
