AN ANCIENT SACRAMENTAL HYMN




O Bread to pilgrims given,
O Food that angels eat,
O manna sent from heaven,
For heaven-born natures meet:
Give us, for thee long pining,
To eat till richly filled;
Till, earthís delights resigning,
Our every wish is stilled.


O water, life-bestowing,
Forth from the Saviourís heart
A fountain purely flowing,
A fount of love thou art:
O let us, freely tasting,
Our burning thirst assuage;
Thy sweetness, never wasting,
Avails from age to age.


Jesus, this feast receiving,
We thee unseen adore;
Thy faithful word believing,
We take, and doubt no more:
Give us, thou true and loving,
On earth to live in thee;
Then, death the veil removing,
Thy glorious face to see.


---Alternative verses---


O water, life-bestowing,
From out the Saviourís heart
A fountain purely flowing,
A fount of love thou art:
O let us, freely tasting,
Our burning thirst assuage;
Thy sweetness, never wasting,
Avails from age to age.
