Sublime Humility



 
It is enough for me,
That in sublime humility,
Stooping sweet and low,
God descends into my soul,
In the Holy Eucharist.

I need nothing more
Than this.

He calms the raging tempest,
As He sates the yearning,
In my body, heart and soul.
The Food that I receive,
Has power to assuage,
my deepest hunger,
Slake my raging thirst.

I drink from springs,
Of living water,
Flowing from His wounded side,
And then I lie,
In cool green meadows
With my God who satisfies.

This is why
At every Eucharist,
When I have fed
On Bread,
Made of the finest wheat
And drunk the Wine,
Sweeter still than honey
In the comb,
In ecstatic bliss,
I cry,
"It is enough!
I ask no more
Than this."

He is  enough,
He always is,
Jesus Christ,
In the Holy Eucharist.

IT IS ENOUGH

   



It is enough,
Eternal Love
Now fills my soul,
Ineffable my bliss.
There is no more,
I now possess,
All there is
this side life,
And all there is
In Heaven,
When I receive
My soul’s beloved,
In the Eucharist.
