Elévation: O misterium ineffabile

Language: Latin

O misterium ineffabile,
o charitatis sacramentum adorabile, 
in quo Christi caro viva 
dilectos cibat convivos,
quos pretioso redemit sanguine.
O pietatis miraculum,
hic est panis vita vitae.
Hic est cibus animae
ibi caro, ibi sanguis
convertent gratiae, 
donat filios gloriae.
O amor, o pietas, 
o epularum jocunditarum felicitas.
