Just Before Communion

Satisfy my soul, o Blessed Communion,
for I am hungry with restless longing
and my thirst has led me to drink the sand.

I am constantly grazing and nibbling without tasting;
teach me to wait patiently
for the true feast that ignites my spirit.

I could drown myself in the world and still feel parched
without the Living Water, the Sweetest Fruit;
open my eyes to see it — You — right in front of me.

Satisfy my soul, o Blessed Communion,
so that I might savor goodness and joy
and live with engaged and satiated purpose.
