I am the bread of life

author of text

The text and music of I am the bread of life were written by Sister Suzanne Toolan, born in Lansing, Michigan in 1927. She wrote this hymn in 1964 during her high-school teaching career. Having torn it up, she was encouraged by a girl pupil to rescue it from the wastepaper basket.
