Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1866 edition. Excerpt: ...fathers longed to see, And the prophets' company, What the holy kings long dead Their true Crown had reckoned, The most holy Bread of Heaven--This to me is freely given. What the people on the shore Prayed might feed them evermore, What the woman by the well Asked, that she might thirstless dwell, This is rendered to our need--Meat indeed and Drink indeed. Who shall measure out its price? Who for it make sacrifice? Gold or rubies gauge it never, All from all for it may sever, And though nought to yield remain, Infinite would be their gain. Therefore with all hosts on high--Alleluia!--rapt I cry; Praise to Him, who from the highest Hath to lowly souls come nighest; Sing of Him till time is o'er, Alleluia! evermore.

Nil in manu mecum fero, Sed me versus crucem gero; Vestimenta nudus oro, Opem debilis imploro; Fontem Christi quaero immundus, Nisi laves, moribundus. ILENCE in the house of prayer; Low our Lord in earth lies sleeping; Silence, silence, everywhere, While the saints their watch are keeping. He at earliest morn shall rise; Now in mystic peace He slumbers; Flow, ye plaintive melodies; Ring, ye still recurring numbers. Though for us His soul doth seek That mysterious world of spirits, He shall rise to cheer the weak; Hope and joy His Church inherits. So Lent's latest vigil now Keep we with a tempered sadness: Easter-morn! speed quickly thou, And transform this grief to gladness. VIGIL OF EASTER-EVE. ESTING from...show more
