At Cana's Feast
Richard Crashaw (1613-1649)

When Christ at Cana's feast, by power divine,
Inspired cold water with the warmth of wine,
"See," cried they, while in reddening tide it gushed,
The conscious water saw its God and blushed.

O let me drink the wine
So long of this chaste vine
Till drunk of the dear wounds, I be
A lost Thing to the world, as it to me.
