holy communion

You satisfy the hungry heart with gift
of finest wheat, come give to us,
O Saving Lord, the Bread of Life to eat.

As when the shepherd calls his sheep,
They know and heed his voice; so when you call
your family Lord, they follow and rejoice.

With joyful lips, we sing to you
Our praise and gratitude, that you should count
us worthy, Lord, to share this Heavenly food.

Is not the cup we bless and share
The blood of Christ outpoured? does not one cup,
one loaf, declare our oneness in the Lord?

The mystery of your presence, Lord,
no mortal tongue can tell: whom all the world
cannot contain comes in our hearts to dwell.
