Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.

[Let us, with heads bowed
Venerate so great a Sacrament,

And let the old practice yield
To the new rite;

Let faith provide a supplement
For the failure of the senses.

To the Begetter and the Begotten
Be praise and jubilation,

Hail, honour, virtue and equal praise
Be to Him, who proceeds from both.
