The Bread of Angels

Panis angelicus

fit panis hominun;

Dat panis coelicus

figuris terminum:

O res mirabilis!

Manducat Dominum

Pauper, pauper servus et humilis.

Pauper, pauper servus humilis.

Te trina Deitas

unaque poscimus:

Sic nos tu visita,

sicut te colimus;

Per tuas semitas

duc nos quo tendimus,

Ad lucem quam inhabitas

Ad lucem quam inhabitas.

English Translation

May the Bread of Angels

Become bread for mankind;

The Bread of Heaven puts

All foreshadowings to an end;

Oh, thing miraculous!

The body of the Lord will nourish

the poor, the servile, and the humble

You God, Three

and One, we beseech;

That You visit us,

As we worship You.

By your ways,

lead us where we are heading

to the light that You inhabit.
