PANIS ANGELICUS I


1 Panis angélicus
Fit panis hóminum,
Dat panis coélicus
Figúris términum.
O res mirábilis:
Mandúcat Dóminum
Pauper, servus
et húmilis.
Farewell to types! henceforth

We feed on angel's food:

The slave, O wonder! eats the flesh
Of his Incarnate God.
2 Te, trina Déitas
Unaque, póscimus,
Sic nos tu vísita,
Sicut te cólimus,
Per Tuas sémitas
Duc nos quo téndimus,
Ad lucem quam inhábitas.
O blessed Three in One!

Visit our hearts, we pray,

And lead us on through Thine own paths
To Thy eternal day.
