Thou who at thy first Eucharist


1. Thou, Who at Thy first Eucharist
didst pray That all Thy Church
might be forever one,
Grant us that ev’ry Eucharist to say
With longing heart and soul,
“Thy will be done.”
O may we all one bread, one body be,
Through this blest sacrament of unity.

2. For all Thy Church,
O Lord, we intercede;
Make Thou our sad divisions
soon to cease;
Draw us the nearer
each to each, we plead,
By drawing all to Thee,
O Prince of Peace;
Thus may we all one bread,
one body be,
Through this blest sacrament of unity.

3. We pray Thee too
for wand’rers from Thy fold;
O bring them back,
good Shepherd of the sheep,
Back to the faith which saints
believed of old,
Back to the Church
which still that faith doth keep;
Soon may we all one bread,
one body be,
Through this blest sacrament of unity.

4. So, Lord, at length
when sacraments shall cease,
May we be one with
all Thy Church above,
One with Thy saints
in one unbroken peace,
One with Thy saints
in one unbounded love;
More blessèd still,
in peace and love to be
One with the Trinity in Unity.
