Pange lingua gloriosi

Pange lingua gloriosi
corporis mysterium
sanguinisque pretiosi,
quem in mundi pretium
fructus ventris generosi
Rex effudit Gentium.

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

Sing, my tongue, the Saviour’s glory,
of His Flesh, the mystery sing;
of the Blood, all price exceeding,
shed by our Immortal King,
destined, for the world’s redemption,
from a noble Womb to spring.

Edward Caswall (1814-1878)
