Panis angelicus LATIN JPEG


  1. The Bread of Angels becomes Bread of men;
    the heavenly Bread puts an end to figures.
    O thing most wonderful!
    the poor and humble servant eats the Lord.

  2. We ask You, O God Three and One,
    to visit us just as we celebrate You;
    along Your paths, lead us to where we are headed,
    to the light where You dwell. Amen.
