735. I Received the Living God

I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.

1 He has said: I am the Bread
Kneaded long to give you life;
You who will partake of me
Need not ever fear to die.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.

2 He has said: I am the Way,
And my Father longs for you;
So I come to bring you home
To be one with him anew.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.

3 He has said: I am the Truth;
If you follow close to me,
You will know me in your heart,
And my word shall make you free.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.

4 He has said: I am the Life
Far from whom no thing can grow,
But receive this living bread,
And my Spirit you shall know.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
I received the living God,
and my heart is full of joy.
