for I am hungry with restless longing
and my thirst has led me to drink the sand.
I am constantly grazing and nibbling without tasting;
teach me to wait patiently
for the true feast that ignites my spirit.
I could drown myself in the world and still feel parched
without the Living Water, the Sweetest Fruit;
open my eyes to see it -- You -- right in front of me.
Satisfy my soul, o Blessed Communion,
so that I might savor goodness and joy
and live with engaged and satiated purpose.
