First communion is a mystery
Initiated by an act of faith,
Revealing what both is and cannot be:
Salvation in a small, round piece of cake!
The first time that you eat and drink of Christ,
Communion with Him in your heart begins.
Offer Him your truth with fearless trust;
Make for Him a seat among your sins.
Many think believing must be seeing,
Unwilling to accept that they are loved,
Not for being good, but just for being,
In doubt that God Himself would be so moved.
Only faith can tell you this is true,
Nor could you know but for Christ's love in you.
