Amen, amen dico vobis:
Nisi manducaveritis carnem filii hominis
et biberitis eius sanguinem,
non habebitis vitam in vobis,

Qui manducat meam carnem et bibit meum sanguinem,
in me manet, et ego in eo.
et eo resuscitabo eum in novissimo die,

Truly, truly, I say unto you:
Unless you eat the flesh of the son of man,
and drink his blood,
you will have no life in you,

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood,
abides in me and I in him.
and I will raise him up at the last day,
Compare Verily, verily I say unto you (Thomas Tallis) and
Qui manducat meam carnem for 2nda parte
