Very bread, Good Shep­herd, tend us;
Jesu, of Thy love be­friend us;
Thou re­fresh us, Thou de­fend us,
Thine eter­nal good­ness send us
In the land of life to see:
Thou who all things canst and know­est,
Who in earth such food be­stow­est,
Grant us with Thy saints, though low­est,
Where the heav’n­ly feast Thou show­est,
Fellow heirs and guests to be.
