Representative Text

1 "I am the life" — "I am the life,"
Oh, gladsome, glorious thought,
The end, the end of mortal strife,
’Tis mine by gift, not bought.

2 Eternal life, eternal life,
A priceless boon from God;
A precious gift, O joyous life,
’Tis here, ’tis mine, unsought.

3 "O come to Me," the Savior said—
The words of life I give;
I am of life the living bread,
Eat all of ye and live.

4 I take, I eat the words He spoke
With thankful heart and true;
I feel His love, as thus He broke
The bread for me and you.
