4 Enrich that temple's holy shrine

With sevenfold gifts of grace divine, With wisdom, light and knowledge bless, Strength, counsel, fear and godliness.

Amen. CHRISTOPHER WORDSWORTH, ab.

2 Here would I feed upon the bread of God;

Here drink with Thee the royal wine of heaven;
Here would I lay aside each earthly load,

Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.

3 I have no help but Thine; nor do I need

Another arm save Thine to lean upon;
It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed;

My strength is in Thy might, Thy might alone.

4 Too soon we rise; the symbols disappear;

The feast, though not the love, is past and gone;
The bread and wine remove, but Thou art here,

Nearer than ever, still my Shield and Sun.

5 Feast after feast thus comes and passes by,

Yet, passing, points to the glad feast above,
Giving sweet foretaste of the festal joy,
The Lamb's great bridal feast of bliss and love. Amen.

HORATIUS BONAR

2 O blest Memorial of our dying Lord,

Who living Bread to men dost here afford!
Oh, may our souls for ever feed on Thee;

And Thou, O Christ, for ever precious be.
3 Fountain of Goodness, Jesus, Lord and God,

Cleanse us, unclean, with Thy most cleansing Blood;
Increase our faith and love, that we may know

The hope and peace which from Thy presence flow.
4 O Christ, Whom now beneath a veil we see,
May what we thirst for soon our portion be,
To gaze on Thee unveiled and see Thy face;
The vision of Thy glory and Thy grace. Amen.

THOMAS AQUINAS. Tr. James R. WOODFORD
