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.
