"I am the bread of life."
Jesus, I adore You who are present in the Eucharist
I have loved You very much since I was a kid
You died on the cross for your love very deep
And for saving sinners from death that you keep.
You have declared that you are the bread of life
So I shall not hunger physically or spiritually
Thank you for that great gift which makes me happy
I wish that everybody on earth could receive You daily.
I am asking You to make me a bread of love
For men and women that I meet on my road
They are suffering for sickness, without any hope
I want to be with them as their good friend.
What I am aspiring to possess is Yourself, Jesus
Who is with me in the Eucharist, the holy sacrement
You are there to forgive all and demand nothing
Forever I am loving You, the bread of peace.
