O Salutaris Hostia: A Happy Feast of Corpus Christi

To all my fellow Western Orthodox, who celebrate this feast, as well as to all my Roman Catholicand Anglo-Catholic friends: A Happy Feast to all!

O saving Victim, opening wide
The gate of Heaven to us below;
Our foes press hard on every side;
Your aid supply; Your strength bestow.
To your great name be endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, One in Three.
O grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with thee.
