1  O Food, the pilgrim needeth,
O Bread, which angels feedeth,
O Manna from above!
The souls that hunger, feed Thou,
The hearts that seek Thee, lead Thou
With Thy sweet, tender love.

2  O Fount of love redeeming,
O River ever streaming
From Jesu's holy side;
Come Thou, Thyself bestowing
On thirsty souls, and flowing
Till all are satisfied.

3  Jesu, this feast receiving,
Thy word of truth believing,
We Thee unseen adore:
Grant, when the veil is rended,
That we, to heaven ascended,
May see Thee evermore.
