O Feeder of the Hungry, Come
Luke 1:53 God has filled the hungry with good things, and has sent the rich empty away.
O Feeder of the Hungry, Come~
Soften our hearts toward
those who are poor and hungry.
Fill us with the food of your word,
of your compassion,
of your vision of a world where all are fed.
In this time when snow lies all about,
when frost is cruel, when winter is bitter,
let our hearts not become icy and cold.
When those who are poor come seeking
nourishment for body and soul,
warm us with your love and compassion.
Compel us to bless the poor,
that we may ourselves find blessing.
Make us to generously and joyfully
feed the hungers of our hurting world.
