Representative Text

1 Christ is the heavenly food that gives
to every famished soul
new life and strength, new joy and hope,
and faith to make them whole.
We all are made for God alone,
without him we are dead;
no food suffices for the soul
but Christ, the living bread.

2 Christ is the unity that binds
in one the near and far;
for we who share his life divine,
his living body are:
on earth, and in the realms beyond,
one fellow ship are we;
and at his table we are knit
in mystic unity.
