Gegroet, werkelijk lichaam
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the Latin 
Gegroet, werkelijk lichaam1,
Geboren uit de Maagd Maria.
Gij hebt echt geleden, bent geofferd
Op het kruis voor de mens.
Uit uw doorboorde zijde
Vloeide water en bloed.
Wees ons tot voorsmaak2
In de beproeving van de dood.
O goede Jezus, o trouwe Jezus,
O Jezus, zoon van Maria!
