John 6:56; Deuteronomy 4:7 [Latin]

56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Qui manducat meam carnem et bibit meum sanguinem in me manet et ego in illo.
Non est alia natio tam grandis, quæ habeat deos appropinquantes sibi, sicut tu, Deus noster, adest.


Qui manducat meam carnem, a 6-part cantata, composed by Francisco Valls (1665-1747)

John 6:53-56

53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Verily, verily I say unto you, composed by Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)
