The text for today's hymn cannot be published due to copyright limitations. We apologize for the inconvenience.

"We are fed and we're nourished."

But like those seeking Jesus, whose bellies were full, like the Israelites of old, who murmured against a God they did not know, we miss who God is in Jesus the Christ.

"Then our hunger returns and again we are blessed."

Blessed by the bread of angels that came down from heaven. Blessed by the bread of life.

Through the waters of baptism and when gathered at table, we are brought into relationship with a very present God. In community we are fed and blessed; we are filled and renewed by a God who gives of God's self over and over again—on the cross and as the bread of life.

"From now on, all will be one in Jesus ... "

Bread of Life, feed us, renew us, make us one. Amen.
