Prayer for the Eucharist by St. Faustina

O Blessed Host, in golden chalice 
enclosed for me,
That through the vast 
wilderness of exile
I may pass 
pure, immaculate, undefiled;
Oh, grant that through the power 
of Your love
this might come to be.

O Blessed Host, take up 
Your dwelling within my soul,
O Thou my heart's purest love!

With Your brilliance the darkness dispel.
Refuse not Your grace to a humble heart.

O Blessed Host, enchantment of all heaven.
Though Your beauty be veiled
And captured in a crumb of bread,
Strong faith tears away that veil.
 Prayer of St. Faustina
