O Salutaris Hostia

My foe draws near
and darkens my sight
leads me to hatred,
and the hard, futile fight.

Cruel night
on this cold, foreign place,
but to you, Holy Victim,
with hope I do pray!

Oh, open the gate
to my true, native shore
and forever I'll praise you
for your strong arm restores

my life and my love
to bright day evermore.
