Feeding On the Living Bread

This morning in church, someone made the statement, “We are feeding on the living bread,” and instantly this song sprang from the depths of my memory. When I was a kid, we mostly sang the words in the first person singular, but all the versions I could find online use “we,” so I’m going with that.

We Are Feeding On the Living Bread

We are feeding on the living bread

We are drinking at the fountainhead

And whoso drinketh, Jesus said

Shall never never thirst again.

What, never thirst again? No, never thirst again.

What, never thirst again? No, never thirst again,

And whoso drinketh, Jesus said

Shall never never thirst again.

 

We are feeding on the living bread,

Eating of the feast our Lord has spread,

And whoso eateth, Jesus said,

Shall hunger nevermore.

What, hunger nevermore? Yes, hunger nevermore!

What, hunger nevermore? Yes, hunger nevermore!

And whoso eateth, Jesus said,

Shall hunger nevermore.

 

We are breathing in the living air,

Breathing in the One whose life we share,

And whoso breatheth—now, fore’er

Shall have the life of God.

What have the life of God? Yes, have the life of God!

What have the life of God? Yes, have the life of God!

And whoso breatheth—now, fore’er

Shall have the life of God.

 

We are tasting of the living wine,

In spirit tasting life divine,

And whoso tasteth, every time

Shall have the joy of God.

What, have the joy of God? Yes, have the joy of God!

What, have the joy of God? Yes, have the joy of God!

And whoso tasteth, every time

Shall have the joy of God.

 

Christ is the resurrected King,

Who died and rose, our life to bring,

If you receive Him you will sing,

And live forevermore.

What, live forevermore? Yes, live forevermore!

What, live forevermore? Yes, live forevermore!

If you receive Him you will sing,

And live forevermore.
