Notes

Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all! How can I love Thee, &c. F. W. Faber. [Holy Communion.] Appeared in his Jesus and Mary, &c, 1849, in 9 stanzas of 4 lines, with the refrain,

"Sweet Sacrament! we Thee adore!
0, make us love Thee more and more!"

It is headed “Corpus Christi." In common use it is broken into parts, as: (1) "Jesus! my Lord," &c.; (2) "Ring joyously, ye solemn bells"; and (3) "Sound, sound His praises higher still." Its use is mainly confined to Roman Catholic Hymns.
