New Testament

John Chapter 6


By the Sea of Galilee, Passover ahead,
Five barley loaves and two fishes five thousand fed -
They'd have force-crowned Christ, so to a mountain He went,
Walked on storm-tossed sea to His disciples, day spent.
The people followed them by boat to Capernaum,
But Jesus knew their bread-bought hearts, and warned 'em:
"Work for eternal meat; I'm the Bread of Life - first
Come - you'll never hunger; believe - you'll never thirst!
Your fathers died, eating manna which heav'n did give;
Eat me - living bread from heav'n - you'll forever live!"
Then many - not His twelve disciples - left 'just so'!
But Simon Peter cried: "Lord, where else shall we go?"
