Lyrics: Pope Innocent VI

Ave, verum corpus natum
de Maria Virgine:
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine:
cuius latus perforatum
unda fluxit et sanguine:
esto nobis praegustatum,
in mortis examine.
O dulcis, O pie, O Jesu, Fili Mariae,
Miserere nobis.

Hail the true body, born
of the Virgin Mary:
You who truly suffered and were sacrificed
on the cross for the sake of man.
From whose pierced flank
flowed water and blood:
Be a foretaste for us
in the trial of death.
O sweet, O merciful, O Jesus, Son of Mary,
Have mercy on us.

Ottavio Catalani
(c.1585 - 1645)

Ave verum corpus

(S.S.A.T.B. (or A.A.T.T.B.) + reduction)
