The Soul's Quest and Other Poems

by Frederick George Scott


 

HYMN


 

HAIL, sacred Feast, to weary mortals given,
    Pledge of God's love! O Christ, we here adore
Thee, the slain Lamb, and Thee, the Bread from heaven—
    Our life and peace, our joy for evermore.

Feed us, dear Lord, Thine own great love supplying

5
    Our lack of faith, our need of every grace;
Dwell in us richly, till, on Thee relying,
    We reach our home and see Thee face to face.

1884.
