Panis Angelicus

Panis Angelicus
The angel's bread
fit panis hominum
becomes the bread of men
Dat panis coelicus
The heavenly bread
figuris terminum
ends all symbols
O res mirabilis!
Oh, miraculous thing!
Manducat Dominum
The body of the Lord will nourish
Pauper, pauper,
The poor, poor,
servus et humilis.
and humble servant
