Tantum ergo (Mode I) verse 1 JPEG

Therefore we, before him bending,
This great Sacrament revere;
Types and shadows have their ending,
For the new rite is here;
Faith, our outward sense befriending,
Makes the inward vision clear.

Tantum ergo (Mode I) verse 2 JPEG

Glory let us give, and blessing
To the Father and the Son;
Honour, might, and praise addressing,
While eternal ages run;
Ever too his love confessing,
Who from both, with both is one.

In honour of the Holy Eucharist

Suggested use: Benediction
