Among us our beloved stands

Among us our beloved stands,
and bids us see his nail-pierced hands,
points to his wounded feet and side,
true emblems of the Crucified.

2. What generous food, what sweet accord,
when at his table sits the Lord!
How fine the bread, how rich the wine,
when Jesus calls his guests to dine!

3. If now, with eyes defiled and dim,
we see the signs, but see not him,
then may his love the scales displace,
that we may see his glorious face!

4. O glorious Bridegroom of our hearts,
your present smile a heaven imparts;
so lift the veil, if veil there be,
let every saint your beauties see!
