Original text and translations

Spanish.png Spanish text

¡O venturoso día, o felix hora,
que tan de buena gana
Christo me dió su carne soberana!
Y díxome: mortal, todo soy tuyo,
fenezca ya tu mal.

German.png German translation

O günstiger Tag, o glückliche Stunde,
daß Christus so bereitswillig
mir sein eigenes Fleisch gab!
Und mir sagte: "Sterblicher, ich bin ganz dein,
beende schon dein Leid."

English.png English translation

Oh fortunate day, oh happy hour,
That Christ so willingly
gave me his own sovereign flesh!
And said to me: "Mortal, I am all yours;
Let your suffering be over."

Translation by James Gibb
