St. Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal:
- - -
When the Patriarch was returning Crowned with triumph from the fray, Him the peaceful king of Salem Came to meet upon his way; Meekly bearing bread and wine, Holy Priesthood's aweful sign. On the truth thus dimly shadowed Later days a luster shed; When the great high-Priest eternal, Under form of wine and bread, For the world's immortal food Gave his flesh and gave his blood. Wondrous Gift! The Word who fashioned All things by his might divine, Bread into his body changes, Into his own blood the wine; What though sense no change perceives, Faith admires, adores, believes. He who once to die a Victim On the cross did not refuse, Day by day upon our altars, That same Sacrifice renews; Through his holy priesthood's hands, Faithful to his last commands While the people all uniting In the Sacrifice sublime Offer Christ to his high Father, Offer up themselves with him; Then together with the priest On the living Victim feast. Hoste dum victo triumphans Abraham revertitur, obvius fit magnus illi rex Salem Melchisedech, vina qui tanquam sacerdos atque panem protulit: quam vetus signabat umbra, clara lucet veritas; pontifex novus secundum ordinem Melchisedech, pane, sub vinoque corpus dat suum cum sanguine. quo creata cuncta verbo mira fit mutatio: panis in carnem, merumque in cruorem vertitur deficit senus, sed alta roborat mentem fides. qui semel Patri cruentam obtulit se victimam; singulis idem diebus, per ministrorum manus, rite nostris incruentus se sub aris immolat. ipsa quin astans sacratis sancta plebs altaribus, maximo Christum Parenti seque cum Christo litat carne posthac quam litavit et cruore pascitur. summa laus Deo Parenti qui creavit omnia; summa sit Nato, redemit qui suo nos sanguine; Flamini par, cujus almo confovemur halitu. Amen. Edward Caswall
