Description

An English translation of the hymn by Thomas Aquinas, set by the Renaissance master Victoria. SATB with optional accompaniment.

Of the glorious Body telling
O my tongue, its mysteries sing.
Given for us, proceeding forth
Human form he deigns in love to take
He is God with us, Emmanuel
By his death atonement doth make,
Gives himself for sinners' sake.

Word made flesh, by Word true bread
Maketh he his Holy Flesh to be:
Wine his Blood, that man by it refreshed,
From the stain of sin shall now go free,
Faith and love remission see.
Amen.
