From the recording Tantum Ergo/ Adoration


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
