Christ in the Hands of His Priest

O, holiest of breads!
O, sweetest of wines!

Nay, mere bread and wine no longer,
for the lips of a priest
changed this food and drink
as a sacred oblation
a sacrifice
an extraordinary substance
which in man's intake
does not commit sin
but all the more sanctified
in its most correct context.

How people long to taste this
which its Perpetrator
instructs his priests
to perpetuate this memorial
for eternity.
