Text

Latin

Tantum ergo, Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui;
Et antiquum documentum,
Novo cedat ritui :
Praestet fides suplementum,
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque

Laus et Jubilatio,

Salus, honor, virtus quoque

Sit et benedictio;

Procedenti ab utroque

Compar sit laudatio.

Amen.


English

Down in adoration falling,

Lo! the sacred Host we hail;

Lo! o'er ancient forms departing

Newer rites of grace prevail;

Faith for all defects supplying

Where the feeble senses fail.

To the Everlasting Father,

And the Son Who reigns on high

With the Holy Ghost proceeding

Forth from Each eternally,

Be salvation, honor, blessing,

Might, and endless majesty.

Amen
