Holy Communion.                     313
ccxcvi. yesu, dulcedo cordium. Jesus, thou Joy of loving hearts !
Thou Fount of Life ! Thou Light of men ! From the best bliss that earth imparts, We turn unfill'd to Thee again.
Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood ;
Thou savest those that on Thee call; To them that seek Thee, Thou art good,
To them that find Thee, All in All!
We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread, And long to feast upon Thee still!
We drink of Thee, the Fountain Head, And thirst our souls from Thee to fill!
Our restless spirits yearn for Thee, Where'er our changeful lot is cast;
Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see, Blest, when our faith can hold Thee fast.
O Jesus, ever with us stay !
Make all our moments calm and bright! Chase the dark night of sin away, Shed o'er the world Thy holy light !
Ray Palmer. [ 1834- J From St. Bernard.
They talk'd of Jesus, as they went;
And Jesus, all unknown, Did at their side Himself present
With sweetness all His own. Swift, as He op'd the sacred word,
His glory they discern'd ; And swift, as His dear voice they heard,
Their hearts within them burn'd.
