Panis angelicus fit panis hominum,
Dat panis caelicus figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis: manducat Dominum
Pauper, servus et humilis.
Te trina Deitas unaque poscimus,
Sic nos tu visita, sicut te colimus:
Per tuas semitas duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas. Amen.

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin
Das Manna wird zur Speise der Menschen.
Das Himmelsbrot gibt der Vorstellung eine Gestalt.
Welch Wunder, zur Speise wird der Herr
dem Bedürftigen, dem Belasteten und dem Geringen.
Dich, dreifaltiger und einer Gott, bitten wir,
dass Du so zu uns kommst, wie wir Dich heilig halten;
mit deinem Ratschlag leite uns dort hin, wonach wir streben:
zum Lichte, deiner Wohnstatt. Amen.
