Original text and translations

Verily, verily I say unto you,
except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man
and drink His blood, ye have not life in you.
Whoso eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life,
and I will raise him up at the last day (bis)
For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood
dwelleth in me, and I in him.

German.png German translation

Wahrlich, wahrlich ich sage euch:
Werdet ihr nicht essen das Fleisch des Menschensohnes
und trinken sein Blut, so habt ihr kein Leben in euch.
Wer mein Fleisch isset und trinket mein Blut, der hat das ewige Leben,
und ich werde ihn am Jüngsten Tage auferwecken.
Denn mein Fleisch ist die rechte Speise, und mein Blut ist der rechte Trank.
Wer mein Fleisch isset und trinket mein Blut,
der bleibt in mir und ich in ihm.
