Text and translations

O sacrum convivium, in quo Christus sumitur;
recolitur memoria passionis ejus;
mens impletur gratia;
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.

Panem de caelo praestitisti eis
Omnem delectamentum in se habentem.

English.png English translation

O sacred banquet, wherein Christ is received;
the memorial of his passion is renewed;
the soul is filled with grace;
and a pledge of future glory is given to us.

You gave them bread from heaven
Containing in itself all sweetness.

Translation by St Ann choir

O sacred communion meal, in which Christ takes form for us;
Renewing here the memory of His passion holy.
Minds grow full of charity;
And a glory yet to come unto us is granted.

O banquet sacré où l'on reçoit le Christ !
On célèbre le mémorial de sa passion,
l'âme est remplie de grâce et,
de la gloire future, le gage nous est donné.

O heiliges Gastmahl, bei dem Christus verzehrt wird:
Das Gedächtnis seines Leidens wird erneuert,

und uns wird ein Pfand der zukünftigen Herrlichkeit gegeben.

O sveta gozbo na kojoj se Krist blaguje,
slavi se spomen muke njegove,
duša se napunja milosti
i daje nam se zalog buduće slave
