Hymn to the Blessed Sacrament
Let us bow in adoration
To this Sacrament so great.
Here is new and perfect worship,
All the old must terminate.
Senses cannot grasp this marvel,
Faith must serve to compensate.
Glory, honor, adoration,
Let us sing with one accord.
Praised be God, almighty Father,
Praised be Christ, his Son, our Lord.
Praised be God, the Holy Spirit,
Triune Godhead be adored. Amen.
Tantum ergo, Sacramentum,
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui.
Praestet fides supplementum
Laus et jubilatio.
Salus honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio.
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio. Amen.
L. You have given them bread from heaven. (Alleluia).
A. Containing in itself all sweetness. (Alleluia).
L. Let us pray. O God in this wonderful sacrament you have left us a memorial of your passion. Grant us, we pray, so to venerate the sacred mysteries of your body and blood, that we may ever feel within us the fruit of your redemption. You live and rule, world without end. Amen.
