AVE VERUM CORPUS


Ave verum Córpus nátum
de María Vírgine:

Vére pássum, immolátum
in Crúce pro hómine.

Cújus látus perforátum
flúxit áqua et sánguine:

Esto nóbis prægustátum
mórtis in exámine.

O Jésu dúlcis !
O Jésu píe !
O Jésu fíli Maríæ.
Hail to Thee! true Body sprung From the Virgin Mary's womb!

The same that on the cross was hung And bore for man the bitter doom.
Thou whose side was pierc'd, and flow'd Both with water and with blood;
Suffer us to taste of Thee In our life's last agony.

O Jesu sweet!
O loving one!
O Jesu, Mary's Son!
