O Sacrum Convivium


 
Original Latin (punctuation from Liber Usualis)
O sacrum convivium!
in quo Christus sumitur:
recolitur memoria passionis ejus:
mens impletur gratia:
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur,
Alleluia.
Translation of original Latin
How holy is this feast
in which Christ is our food:
his passion is recalled,
grace fills our hearts,
and we recive a pledge of the glory to come.
Alleluia.1
