Surgite, surgite Per il Santissimo

Language: Latin

Surgite, surgite querite Dominum dum inveniri potest. 
Invocate eum dum prope est.
Circuivi civitatemque, sivi illum et non in veni; 
vocavi illum et non respondit. 
Indicate mihi ubi cubet dilectus meus.
In Altaris Sacramento, sub diversis speciebus,
ibi latet Christus Iesus, caro cibus, sanguis potus -- 
ibi manet Christus totus.
Sumite, edite Dominum dum seprebet in epulum, 
bibite dum seprebet in poculum.
Manducate eum dum panis Angelorum est.
Tenui eum nec dimittam. Alleluia.
Tenui eum nec dimittam donec introducam illum in animam meam.
