SATB
 

Latin

Ave verum corpus,

Natum de Maria Virgine;

Vere passum immolatum

In crucis pro homine.

Cuius latus perforatum

Unda fluxit sanguine.

Esto nobis praegustatum

In mortis examine.

O Jesu dulcis, O Jesu pie,

O Jesu Fili Mariae,

Miserere mei. Amen.

English Translation

Hail, true body,

Born of the Virgin Mary;

Who has truly suffered, sacrificed

On the Cross for humanity.

From whose pierced side,

Water and blood flowed.

Be for us a foretaste

In our ordeal of death.

O sweet Jesus, O holy Jesus,

O Jesus Son of Mary,

Have mercy on me. Amen.
