Description

Both the original Latin and a new English text by Beverly Easterling are included in this beautiful setting of the Eucharistic hymn by Saint-Saëns. SATB a cappella.

Ave, verum corpus natum
ex Maria Virgine:
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine:
cuius latus perforatum
unda fluxit cum sanguine:
esto nobis praegustatum,
in mortis examine.

Jesus, living Word incarnate,
of Mary, Virgin Mother born.
Lifted on the Cross most holy,
For us, crucified and scorned.
Cleanse us by the true obedience
Of thy holy life outpoured.
Feed us with these holy mysteries,
Christ eternally adored.
