God’s Gracious Gift

I am Your gift to me.

You are My Eucharistic Lord,

Coming as food,

For my spirit,

For my soul,

For my body.


Your Life feeds my life.

Your Spirit supplies a holy Breath

To fill me and pervade my very being.


Your Father awaits my return,

Rising in You after each fall

He embraces me as He embraces You,

And weaves my future in a unity of Trinity,

Making of me a gift  to the world about me.


Jesus, gift of the Father,

Gift me in Your Spirit,

To live with You the divine Life of God.

You, my Eucharist,

I offer the Father in perpetual thanksgiving.
