|835||St. Benet||Henry J. Gauntlett (1805-1876)||126.96.36.199.
|1||O Jesu, Thou art present
Where’er we kneel and pray,
And ever art Thou near us,
To succor night and day.
|2||How can we hope in heaven
To kneel before the throne,
Or join the joyful worship
Of Thee we love alone.
|3||If now, before Thine altar,
We ne’er have knelt in prayer,
Nor hailed the wondrous presence,
Which Thou vouchsafest there?
|4||Above, 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.
|Revelation||5:12||Saying 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.
