Original text and translations
1. O Lord, we are not worthy,
That Thou in us shouldst dwell;
But speak the words of comfort,
Our spirits shall be well.
R.: Christ, our living Bread,
Lamb, whose Blood was shed,
O Sacrament divine,
All praise be ever Thine!
2. “O come, all ye who labor
In sorrow and in pain;
Come eat this Bread from heaven,
Your peace and strength regain.”
3. O Jesus, we adore Thee,
Who, in Thy love divine,
Conceal Thy mighty Godhead
In forms of bread and wine.
4. O Jesus, we adore Thee,
Our Victim and our Priest,
Whose precious Blood and Body
Become our Sacred feast.
