Eucharistic Meditations

Forty Two

  1. Lord we adore you with each straining soul,
    With prayers and music to our utmost power,
    In loving you we make ourselves more whole,
    And strengthen hope with every faithful hour.
  2. As You commanded through Your loving son,
    We celebrate the Holy Eucharist,
    In lively hope that what was then begun
    No child of Yours could squander nor resist.
  3. But O, what triumph waits earth cannot name,
    Greater than words and music ever told,
    Better than Saints and prophets can proclaim,
    Wider than all the universe can hold.
