Panis Angelicus

Sung on this track by the GREEN cantor.

Panis angelicus fit panis hominum.
Dat panis coelicus figuris terminum.
O res mirabilis manducat Dominum:
Pauper, servus et humilis.

Te trina Deitas unaque, poscimus,
Sic nos tu visita sicut te colimus.
Per tuas semitas duc nos quo tendimus
Ad lucem quam in habitas.

The bread of angels becomes the bread of humankind.
The heavenly bread gives an end to earthly forms.
O marvelous and wondrous sacrament:
the poor one, the servant and the humble all partake of the Lord.

You, O Godhead, One in Three, we implore,
so you may visit us, as we now worship you.
Lead us in your way, that we at last may see
the light wherein you dwell.
