Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics

To Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament

Welcome, my very God that died on the rood,
Welcome, my sweet Jesus,
that for me sheddest thy heart-blood,
Welcome, Son of the Virgin Mary.
Welcome, my Lord of great mercy,
Welcome, my rightful judge, when I shall die.
Welcome, thou very joy and food of angels,
Welcome, thou love and happiness of all Saints,
Welcome, thou desire and comfort
of all Christian souls.

A favourite medieval prayer of Father John Hope, Rector of Christ Church St Laurence, Sydney from 1926 to 1964.
