A Medieval Prayer for Spiritual NourishmentRadbod (d. 917) = Waddell, Mediaeval Latin Lyrics p. 130
Hunger and thirst for seeing you, o Christ God, Now bar me from eating any fleshly food. Only allow me to partake of you And to drink of you, o draught of salvation; May you alone be food for the unknown way. And whomever lengthy hunger has eaten away As he wanders about in the world, Satiate him now, o image of the Father, With your countenance.
Aesuries te, Christe deus, sitis atque videndi
iam modo carnales me vetat esse dapes.
da modo te vesci, te potum haurire salutis;
unicus ignotae tu cibus esto viae.
et quem longa fames errantem ambesit in orbe,
nunc satia vultu, patris imago, tuo.
