Jesus, the bread of life (John 6.25-59 & Exodus 16)

Because I believe,
you are my bread.
You are my food,
my diet of heaven.

You are the manna in my mornings,
the fleeting flakes
that feed me with your life,
with the honey-sweet taste of your love
that will never lose me.

You see me as gift to you
as you are gift to me
and God is the giver.

You are my life,
you are my way in this world
and my path beyond;
eternity is the meadow
in which we can run.

I need never hunger or thirst
for you are my portion,
your flesh is my bread
and I am filled
with you.
