Favorite Communion hymn


What is your favorite Communion (Eucharistic) hymn (hymns)?:harp::harp::harp:


I will have to go against the grain on this one. My favorite is silence. I like to pray and reflect during this time and find the hymn distracting.


Hosea. I can’t remember the composer(s), but I think it is an order of Franciscans.

The refrain: “Long have I waited for you coming home to Me and living our new life together.”


“Panis Angelicus”


Jesus My Lord, My God, My All

an oldie, but a goodie. :thumbsup:


“I received the living God, and my heart is filled with joy”.







by Saint Padre Pio, OFM Cap.

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You.

Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak and I need Your strength, that I may not fall so often.

Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life, and without You, I am without fervor.

Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light, and without You, I am in darkness.

Stay with me, Lord, to show me Your will.

Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You.

Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love You very much, and always be in Your company.

Stay with me, Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You.

Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I wish it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of Love.

Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late and the day is coming to a close, and life passes, death, judgement, eternity approaches. It is necessary to renew my strength, so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You. It is getting late and death approaches. I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows. O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile!

Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all its dangers, I need You.

Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the light which disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart.

Stay with me, Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to You, if not by Communion, at least by grace and love.

Stay with me, Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation, because I do not merit it, but, the gift of Your Presence, oh yes, I ask this of You!

Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for. Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit, because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.

With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity.


The meditation hymn is great.



Pange, Lingua Gloriosi


I love hearing Song of the Body of Christ at my parish. Very seldom that I hear that song. I guess it depends on which mass I attend.


One of my favorites also.


I have too many favorites, actually. :slight_smile:

Some that you have listed are some that I also like.


One bread, one body. :thumbsup:


Right now it is Mary’s Song.


Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence - which we had today.




:thumbsup: That !

WHile i there are many songs i like ABOUT the Eucharist, i wish we could have no distraction at that time.
If we could all see what is really going on at the altar during the time of Consecration, we would all be on our faces. It is then that we are all present at Calvary at the moment of Jesus’ crucifixion, and He is looking at each one of us with complete love.

To be distracted in any way, even to be looking at a hymnal, is a waste of those precious moments when we are in the physical presence of God the Son, Our Lady, and all the host of Heaven. It is a time we should spend adoring Him during this most sublime gift of Grace for our souls.


My favorite is one that was popular when I was a kid" Oh Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst come to me…"
Sadly, one rarely hears it today.


If there is going to be music, I prefer either only instrumental or a Choir singing in Latin. But I never get it :shrug:

God Bless.
