Eucharistic Meditations


Receptacle of earthly life,
Significance receding,
The pressure mounts within my heart
To go where You are leading;
Such earthly joys as You have given
Have brought their rays of gladness
But the mean use that I have made
Of them brings only sadness.

The Eucharistic sacrifice
With resurrection glowing
Sustains me, with the Spirit's Grace
And comfort overflowing;
So shall I focus in my days
Upon Your earth created
And live and love and see in it
Your Heaven anticipated.
