Pange, lingua, gloriosi

Language: Latin

Pange, lingua, gloriosi
Corporis mysterium,
Sanguinisque pretiosi,
Quem in mundi pretium
Fructus ventris generosi,
Rex effudit gentium.

Nobis datus, nobis natus
Ex intacta Virgine
Et in mundo conversatus,
Sparso verbi semine,
Sui moras incolatus
Miro clausit ordine.

In supremae nocte cenae
Recumbens cum fratribus,
Observata lege plene
Cibis in legalibus,
Cibum turbae duodenae
Se dat suis manibus

Verbum caro, panem verum
Verbo carnem efficit:
Fitque sanguis Christi merum,
Et si sensus deficit,
Ad firmandum cor sincerum
Sola fides sufficit.

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

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

Tantum Ergo

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the Latin





























Zo'n groot teken, heiligmakend,
Laat ons eren nederig
En de oude rituelen
Wijken voor het nieuwe zicht.
Laat geloof nu compenseren
Wat buiten de zinnen ligt.
 
De Verwekker, de Verwekte
Geef hun lof en jubeling,
Heil en eerbied, kracht daarbij ook
Zij hun deel, en zegening;
Hem die voortkomt uit hen beiden
Gelde gelijke huldiging. Amen.
