He took the loaf - an object which He found
Conveniently for His desire and time;
And made its emblematic truth resound -
The banal, at His hand, became sublime.

He took the cup - an object which He found,
Ready to hand, in a convenient place.
His touch made its symbolic truth redound
In praise that answers God's majestic grace.


  1. Good one. Reminds me of the symbolic 'holy communion' of which I am privileged to have shared.


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
