You Satisfy the Hungry Heart

Today I was singing this song as I went about my work around the house, so when I had a chance, I played it on Youtube.


refrain
You satisfy the hungry heart with gift of finest wheat,
come give to us o saving Lord, the bread of life to eat.

1. As when the shepherd calls his sheep, they know and heed his voice;
so when You call Your family Lord, we follow and rejoice.

(refrain)

2. With joyful lips we sing to You, our praise and gratitude,
that You should count us worthy Lord, to share this heavenly food.

(refrain)

3. The mystery of Your presence Lord, no mortal tongue can tell;
whom all the world cannot contain comes in our hearts to dwell.

(refrain)

4. You give yourself to us o Lord, then selfless let us be,
to serve each other in Your name in truth and charity.

(refrain)

I also came across this quote yesterday:

In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration and teach it to the faithful. It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering. Pope Benedict XVI

I have so much I want to say about the lack of love for our Lord, the lack of silence to listen to Him, to adore Him, to love Him. That post will have to wait for another day, as I put more thoughts down and work through them.

  1. My mom assigned me the task of choosing the communion hymn. I had a choice of half a dozen or do in the hymnal/missalette that her church uses. This is the one I picked because it was the only one whose text was appropriate (other than Ave verum corpus that no would have been able to sing). I find the music rather schmaltzy though.

    I agree there is such a lack of reverence for the Eucharist. It makes me even more mad when it’s a priest who doesn’t show due reverence to the eucharist. Please pray for Fr. J.S.
