Hi all.

Meron na ba senyo alam yung kantang the seed?

Lyrics of 2nd stanza go

1. The bread by your hand, was once a seed t'was sown then grew and yielded on the ground, and gathered for all men.

2. The wine by Your cup, was once a vine that crept; it grew to bear good fruits for men, a symbol of your blood.

Question 1: Gusto ko lang iconfirm kung theologically sound ba yung 2nd stanza? 'Di ba the consecrated wine is not a symbol of Christ; it really is Christ?

Question 2: Kung not theologically sound, we can edit. Any suggestions on how to rephrase Stanza 2?

Thanks! Kakantahin na kasi ito tomorrow night. I'd really appreciate ideas...

Hi JR

Technically, the Eucharist is both a symbol and a reality, so ayus lang.

The song, normally is sang for offertory... kaya the wine offered is not yet consecrated thus is not yet transubstatiated to Christ's blood.

Nice song to hear, but very confusing. The chorus says "Of that seed, we EAT your body." Meaning, it is for Communion. [unless the lyricist meant otherwise]. But sa lyrics, it is for Offertory...
