Eucharistic Meditations


  1. Immortal food in bread concealed
    Whose substance Our dear Lord revealed;
    Unceasing blood of life complete
    Whose strength springs from earthly defeat:
    What gains accrued from sacrifice!
    What pain that brought us to rejoice!
  2. Unbounded love that suffered pain
    That we might recognise our gain;
    No abstract utterance sent down
    But thorns that made a royal crown:
    And He is here once crucified
    To be the Lamb and yet preside.
