“Give them something to eat.”

“Give them something to eat.”

On the mountain of Your Holiness,
You commanded,
“You give them something to eat.”

What have I that would feed,
And satisfy so many?
You give to me,
In steady supply.

You are my All.
In You, I believe,
It is You, I adore,
And from You, I draw my hope,
And loving trust.

You have fulfilled Your promise,
Feeding me with the finest wheat, the Eucharistic Wheat,
Made Bread, most holy,
Your body and Your Blood.

“Give them something to eat.”

What have I that would feed,
And satisfy so many?
I will give them my Treasure,
My Only Good.

As life flowing from this temple
Flow from me,
To water,
And sup with humanity all about me.
