Eucharistic Meditations

Twenty One

  1. We are not worthy to kneel at Thy altar fair
    But mend our promise in penitence and prayer,
    To seek Thy blessing of love and comfort rare,
    And eat Thy sacred food beyond compare.
  2. Where we are broken Thy Spirit offers Grace,
    And from our wandering restores us to our place,
    And in embracing we live in Thy embrace,
    Mended completely, healed by Thy ravaged face.
  3. Though we may falter Thy Sacrifice untold
    Lightens our journey, instructed and consoled,
    Towards Thy presence where in Thy saving fold
    Through bread and wine transformed Thy countenance to behold.
