You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

O pane del ciel

Language: Italian (Italiano)

O pane del ciel
O vivo conforto del alma fedel!
D'amore sei pegno
Di gloria sei pegno
Mistero di fe
Che un cibo piu dolce nel cielo non v'é

O manna vital
Che l'aime nutrisci le rendi immortal
Deh ! vieni nel petto
Deh ! purga l'affetto
Da' mie vanita
Che viver non voglio che all' eternita.

O laccio d'amor
Che stringi col servo l'amato Signor
Di te son, ben mio
Te solo vogl'io
Mai d'altri saro
Piutosto di vita penando usciro.

O dolce Giesu
Mia gioia, mia vita, mio cibo sei tu:
lo vivo non lo
Ma vive in me Dio
Che vita mi da
E come suo figlio glorioso mi fa.

Mia speme sei tu
Che desti sul legno la vita per me
Ti dono il mio core
Eterni Signore
Tuo sempre saro
Te stesso m'hai dato me stesso ti do.
