Lyrics

Panis angelicus
fit panis hominum;
Dat panis coelicus
figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis!
Manducat Dominum.
Pauper, servus et humilis.

Te trina Deitas
unaque poscimus:
Sic nos tu visita,
sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas
duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas.
Amen.

[translation:
The angelic bread becomes the bread of men;
The heavenly bread ends all prefigurations:
What wonder! consumes the Lord a po,Or and humble servant.

Triune God, We beg of You, that you visit us, as we worship You.
By your ways, lead us who seek the light in which You dwell. Amen.]

BREAD OF ANGELS
Thomas Pavlechko

Bread of the angels
Becomes the bread of all;
Heavenly substanence
Given our earthly form:
O wondrous mystery!
Fo,Od for humanity.

Pauper, servant, the humble, small.
O everlasting Love,
God ever Three in One;
Visit us as we pray,
Enter our grateful hearts;
Lead us in righteousness,
Guide us along the path
Into the light in which you dwell.
