    Sweet Sacrament Divine
    Sweet sacrament divine, hid in thy earthly home,
    lo, round thy lowly shrine, with suppliant hearts we come;
    Jesus, to thee our voice we raise,
    in songs of love and heartfelt praise,
    sweet sacrament divine,
    sweet sacrament divine.

    Sweet sacrament of peace, dear home of ev’ry heart,
    where restless yearnings cease, and sorrows all depart;
    there in thine ear all trustfully we tell our tale of misery,
    sweet sacrament of peace,
    sweet sacrament of peace.

    Sweet sacrament of rest, ark from the ocean’s roar,
    within thy shelter blest soon may we reach the shore;
    save us, for still the tempest raves,
    save, lest we sink beneath the waves,
    sweet sacrament of rest,
    sweet sacrament of rest.

    Sweet sacrament divine, earth’s light and jubilee,
    in thy far depths doth shine thy Godhead’s majesty;
    sweet light, so shine on us, we pray,
    that worthless joys may fade away,
    sweet sacrament divine,
    sweet sacrament divine.

    Francis Stanfield (1835-1914)

    God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

    God the Father,
    we praise you and we bless you
    because you are the Father of Jesus,
    and because you wish to be our Father also
    according to your love and mercy.
    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!

    God the Son,
    we praise you and we bless you
    because you are the Son of the Father’s love,
    and because you wish to be the eldest brother also
    of all the children of God.
    Blest are you, O Lord through eternity!

    God the Holy Spirit,
    we praise you and we bless you
    because you are the love of the Father and the Son
    springing up like a fire out of their affection,
    and because you wish to dwell in our hearts also
    like a furnace of love.
    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!

    God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
    we praise you and we bless you
    because you are God surpassing all praise
    yet you accept the stammering of our adoration.
    To you we direct our love forever and ever.
    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!
    (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)

    God our Father, source of all love and joy,
    you who never measure the grace of your Spirit
    but offer it to every person
    with the royal generosity of divine giving,
    we pray to you:

    In giving us the Spirit of your Son,
    pour into our hearts the fullness of love,
    so that we are able to love you alone
    yet preserve all our tenderness for people also,
    in this unique love, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
