THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All
Nicola A. Montani
Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All!
How can I love Thee as I ought?
And how revere this wondrous gift,
So far surpassing hope or thought?
Sweet Sacrament! We Thee adore!
Oh, make us love Thee more and more. (Repeat refrain ad lib)
Had I but Mary's sinless heart
To love Thee with my dearest King!
Oh, with what bursts of fervent praise
Thy goodness, Jesus! Would I sing!
Thy Body, Soul, and Godhead all!
O mystery of love divine!
I cannot compass all I have,
For all Thou hast and art are mine.
Sound, sound His praises higher still,
And come, ye angels, to our aid;
'Tis God! 'tis God! The very God,
Whose pow'r both man and angels made!
