Latin.png Latin text

Pange lingua gloriosi
Corporis mysterium
Sanguinisque pretiosi
Quem in mundi pretium
Fructus ventris generosi
Rex effudit gentium.

Tantum ergo sacramentum
Veneremur cernui
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui;
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori Genitoque
Laus et iubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio;
Procedenti ab utroque
Comparsit laudatio. Amen.

Sing, my tongue, the mystery
of the glorious body and
the precious blood
that was shed to redeem the world,
by the fruit of a generous womb,
the king of all the nations.

Let us therefore revere
this great sacrament,
and let old forms of worship
give way to the new;
let our inadequate senses
find support in faith.

To the Father and the Son,
praise and glory,
greeting, honour, power
and blessing be given;
and may the Spirit proceeding
from both share in their praise. Amen.
