835St. BenetHenry J. Gauntlett (1805-1876)

1O Jesu, Thou art present
Where’er we kneel and pray,
And ever art Thou near us,
To succor night and day.
2How can we hope in heaven
To kneel before the throne,
Or join the joyful worship
Of Thee we love alone.
3If now, before Thine altar,
We ne’er have knelt in prayer,
Nor hailed the wondrous presence,
Which Thou vouchsafest there?
4Above, below, one worship
Unites the Church in one,
The ceaseless adoration
Of God’s Incarnate Son.
5’Tis thus, O Lord, before Thee,
Thy sweetest grace we hail,
Thy eucharistic presence,
Though hid beneath the veil. Amen.
Revelation5:12Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
