Ave Maria Meditations

Corpus Christi 

 +++

Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,

How can I love Thee as I ought?

And how revere this wond’rous gift,

So far surpassing hope or thought.

Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore.

O make us love Thee more and more!

O make us love Thee more and more!

+++

Had I but Mary’s sinless heart,

To love Thee with, my dearest King;

O with what bursts of fervent praise,

Thy goodness, Jesus, would I sing!

Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore.

O make us love Thee more and more!

O make us love Thee more and more!

+++

O, see, within a creature’s hand,

The vast Creator deigns to be,

Reposing infant-like, as though

On Joseph’s arm, on Mary’s knee.

Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore.

O make us love Thee more and more!

O make us love Thee more and more!

+++

Thy body, soul, and Godhead, all–

O mystery of love divine!

I cannot compass all I have,

For all Thou hast and art are mine.

Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore.

O make us love Thee more and more!

O make us love Thee more and more!

+++

Sound, sound His praises higher still,

And come ye Angels to our aid;

‘Tis God, ’tis God, the very God,

Whose power both man and angels made.

Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore.

O make us love Thee more and more!

O make us love Thee more and more!

Fr. Frederick Faber

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
