Very Bread, Good Shepherd Tend Us by Healey Willan
Very Bread, Good Shepherd, tend us,
Jesu of thy love befriend us;
thou refresh us, thou defend, us
thou eternal goodness send us
in the land of life to see.
Thou who all things canst and knowest,
who on earth such food bestowest,
grant us with thy saints, though lowest,
where the heavenly feast thou showest,
fellow heirs and guests to be.
