“MY CHALICE YOU WILL INDEED DRINK.”    (Matthew 20, 20-28)



What savory wine have You prepared, dear Lord,

for Your followers to drink?

What Chalice of fine gold

To enhance its contents?

Privileged we to drink with You

The Cup of Blessing,

Where death and life intermingle;

Where suffering is sweetened

And joy rises from pleasing You!

Proffer Your Cup, my Lord.

Give the grace to imbibe

With open hearts

And willing lips;

With gaze fixed on You.

Let us ask naught else but this,

To serve You in all!

To love You above all!
