Sweet feast of love divine

1
Sweet feast of love divine!
  ’Tis grace that makes us free
To feed upon this bread and wine,
  In mem’ry, Lord, of Thee.
2
Here every welcome guest
  Waits, Lord, from Thee to learn
The secrets of Thy Father’s breast,
  And all Thy grace discern.
3
Here conscience ends its strife,
  And faith delights to prove
The sweetness of the Bread of Life,
  The fulness of Thy love.
4
That blood that flowed for sin
  In symbol here we see,
And feel the blessed pledge within
  That we are loved of Thee.
5
O if this glimpse of love
  Is so divinely sweet,
What will it be, O Lord, above,
  Thy gladd’ning smile to meet!
6
To see Thee face to face,
  Thy perfect likeness wear,
And all Thy ways of wondrous grace
  Through endless years declare.

Edward Denny, son of E. Denny, fourth bar­onet, of Tra­lee Cas­tle, Coun­ty Ker­ry, suc­ceeded his fa­ther as bar­o­net in Au­gust 1831:

Nearly the whole town of Tra­lee be­longed to him. He had an op­por­tun­i­ty twen­ty years ago, when his leas­es fell in, of rais­ing his rents to fig­ures that, in some cas­es, would not have been con­sid­ered ex­tor­tion­ate had they been quad­ru­pled. He, how­ev­er, de­cid­ed to ac­cept the old rents. The re­sult was that he was al­most alone in es­cap­ing any re­duct­ion in the hands of the Land Com­miss­ion. So far as he was him­self con­cerned, a lit­tle mon­ey went a long way, but he gave lib­er­al­ly to poor rela­tions and to the de­vel­op­ment of re­li­gious work in con­nect­ion with the “Brethren.” Liv­ing in a qui­et way in a cot­tage in Is­ling­ton, he de­vot­ed his time to the stu­dy of the pro­phet­ic books. His rent­al in­come from Ire­land was about £13,000 a year. - Leeds Mercury (newspaper), June 19, 1889
