SATB and organ. Text from Thomas Aquinas, Adoro te and Lauda Sion. (In English)
Hymnlike, with rich harmonies.
Help, Lord, my faith, my hope increase,
And fill my portion in thy peace,
Live ever Bread of love and be my life,
My soul, my sure self to me.
Come, love, come Lord, and that long day
for which I languish, come away,
when this dry soul those eyes shall see,
and drink the unsealed source of thee.
Rise, Royal Sion, rise and sing,
Thy souls, kind Shepherd, thy hearts King.
Give love for life nor let my day grow,
But in new powers to thy name, and praise.
