Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
John 6:27 KJV
A man must quickly eat the meat he buys
Or else it rots and does nobody good,
And he must live his life until he dies
And then his body's done the best it could.
Don't spend your days obsessing on the flesh;
It won't endure beyond its meted time.
Work toward that meat that always will stay fresh
With everlasting life that's so sublime.
What must you do to earn eternal food?
Believe in He whom God the Father sealed.
Let Jesus be the one your faith's pursued.
Be hungry for the Word of Life revealed.
Seek first the sustenance that fills the soul;
The more that you consume the more you're whole.
