  After Communion  

 

Why should I call Thee Lord, Who art my God?
    Why should I call Thee Friend, Who art my Love?
    Or King, Who art my very Spouse above?
Or call Thy Sceptre on my heart Thy rod?
    Lo, now Thy banner over me is love,
All heaven flies open to me at Thy nod:
For Thou hast lit Thy flame in me a clod,
    Made me a nest for dwelling of Thy Dove.
    What wilt Thou call me in our home above,
Who now hast called me friend? how will it be
        When Thou for good wine settest forth the best?
Now Thou dost bid me come and sup with Thee,
        Now Thou dost make me lean upon Thy breast:
How will it be with me in time of love?

       - Christina G. Rossetti
