|DOWN IN ADORATION FALLING
Down in adoration falling,
Lo! The Sacred Host we Hail!
Lo! o’er ancient forms departing,
Newer rites of grace prevailsenses cannot grasp the marvel;
Faith must serve to compensate.
Praise and glorify the father,
Bless his Son’s life-giving name,
Singing their eternal Godhead,
Power, majesty and fame,
Offering their Holy Spirit
Equal worship and acclaim.
