Text Information:

For the rice-based peoples of Asia, Jesus’ self-disclosure as the Bread of Life (John 6:35, 51) does not relate to daily experience as it does in Western societies. This hymn seeks to bridge that gap and to alert us to such assumptions. The tune name is Taiwanese for “rice-food.”
