Description

SATB with organ accompaniment. Text by Thomas Aquinas, music based on the plainchant Verbum supernum prodiens. Just beautiful!

The heavenly Word proceeding forth,
Yet leaving not the Father’s side,
Accomplishing His work on earth
Had reached at length life’s even tide.

He gave Himself in either kind,
His precious flesh, His precious blood,
In love’s own fullness thus designed
Of the whole man to be the Food.

By false disciple to be given,
To foemen for His life a thirst,
Himself the very Bread of Heaven,
He gave to His disciples first.

O saving victim opening wide the
Gate of heav’n to us below,
Our foes press on from every side,
Thine aid supply thy strength bestow.
