Eat this bread; drink this cup.1. I am the bread of life, the true bread sent from the Father.
Come to me and never be hungry.
Eat this bread; drink this cup.
Trust in me and you will not thirst.
2. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert, but this is the bread come down from heaven.
3. Eat my flesh and drink my blood, and I will raise you up on the last day.
4. Anyone who eats this bread, will live forever.
5. If you believe and eat this bread, you will have eternal life.
