Tantum Ergo/ Adoration

(click song title for lyrics and MP3 for song sample)


Tantum ergo Sacramentum

Veneremur cernui

Et antiquum documentum

Novo cedat ritui

Praestet fides supplementum

Sensuum defectui


Down in adoration falling

This great sacrament we hail

Over ancient forms departing

Newer rites of grace prevail

Faith for all defects supplying

Where the feeble senses fail


To the everlasting Father

And the Son who reigns on high

With the Spirit blest proceeding

Forth from each eternally

Be salvation, honor, blessing

Might and endless majesty


Jesus, lamb of God saving love for all

Lord of heaven and earth, Father's love for all

I bow to You

Jesus, lamb of God saving love for all

Lord of heaven and earth

I bow to You, bow to You, I bow to You


Genitori Genitoque

Laus et Jubilatio

Salus, honor, virtus quoque

Sit et benedictio

Procedenti ab utroque

Compar sit laudatio


Pour upon us Lord of mercy

Spirit of thy selfless love

Make us of one true heart yearning

For the glory of Thy Son

Jesus, fire of justice blazing

Gladdening light forever more


Tantum Ergo by St. Thomas Aquinas and John Wade, translation by Edward Caswall, refrain by Matt Maher
