Matthias Loy, 1880
An awe-full mystery is here|
To challenge faith and waken fear:
The Savior comes as food divine,
Concealed in earthly bread and wine.
2. This world is loveless, -- but above,
3. In consecrated wine and bread
4. How dull are all the powers of sense|
Employed on proofs of love immense!
The richest food remains unseen,
And highest gifts appear -- how mean!
5. But here we have no boon on earth,
6. Lord, show us still that Thou art good
