You offer a cup glowing with love,
Each drop so precious,
It would quench the thirst of nations.
So rich it would buy eternal peace.
The color of shed blood,
Spreading the odor of unlimited mercy.
I hold this cup in gentle hands,
Fingers enfolding everlasting oneness
As my lips take life itself,
And Heaven is tasted,
My body only the means.
And my soul is renewed.
