A thought on the Most Holy Eucharist

O Godhead hid, devoutly I adore Thee, 
Who truly art within the forms before me; 
To Thee my heart I bow with bended knee, 
As failing quite in contemplating Thee. 
 
Sight, touch, and taste in Thee are each deceived; 
The ear alone most safely is believed: 
I believe all the Son of God has spoken, 
Than Truth's own word there is no truer token. 
 - from Adoro te devote by St Thomas Aquinas
