German.png German text

Gott sei gelobet und gebenedeiet,
der uns selber hat gespeiset
mit seinem Fleische und mit seinem Blute;
das gib uns, Herr Gott, zugute.
Herr, durch deinen heiligen Leichnam,
der von deiner Mutter Maria kam,
und das heilige Blut
hilf uns, Herr, aus aller Not.

English.png English translation

O Lord, we praise Thee, bless Thee, and adore Thee,
In thanksgiving bow before Thee.
Thou with Thy body and Thy blood didst nourish
Our weak souls that they may flouish.
O Lord, have mercy!
May Thy body, Lord, born of Mary,
That our sins and sorrows did carry,
And Thy blood for us plead
In all trial, fear, and need:
O Lord, have mercy!
