May that love, so strong and tender, bind us fast to him alone, 53

to feed the hungry, quench their thirst, make love and peace our fast, 696

We seal you fast in time and word, assured your full voice we have heard, 738


open wide the fast-closed portal, saying to the Lord immortal:, 588


It happened on that fateful night when pow'rs of earth and hell arose, 355


again to you, O Father, our praises rise., 571
