14th century Swedish folk tune, but with new words

Sung to the tune of #26 in the Green Lutheran Book of Worship, text by Rev. Mark Anderson   Jesus with little one by freestone

 

O Bread of Life from Hea-ven, O Source of life for all.

We thank you for your good-ness, for grace to hear Your call.

We lift Your cross a-bove us, the sign of how You lo-ve us.

All praise the Living Word! Dear Jesus Christ our Lord!

 

From dust and clay you formed us that we might tend the earth.

But sin has taken hold, Lord, and claims us from our birth.

No earthly pow’r can save us, Your mercy, Lord, must cla-im us.

 

Your Word of law and gos-pel brings death, and life anew.

Conforming us to Jesus that we might live for You.

The world’s dim passing glory, is not the final story.

 

All praise the Living Word! Dear Jesus Christ our Lord!
