TANTUM ERGO


1 Tantum ergo Sacraméntum
Venerémur cérnui,
Et antíquum documéntum
Novo cédat rítui.
Præstet fides suppleméntum
Sénsuum deféctui.
Lowly bending, deep adoring,
Lo! the Sacrament we hail:
Types and shadows have their ending,
Newer rites of grace prevail:
Faith for all defects supplying
Where the feeble senses fail.
2 Genitóri Genitóque
Laus et jubilátio
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedíctio.
Procedénti ab utróque
Compar sit laudátio.
To the everlasting Father,
And the Son who reigns on high
With the Holy Ghost proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honour, blessing,
Might and endless majesty.
** Amen Amen.
