Panis angelicus
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): DAN DUT FIN GER POR
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.

C. Franck sets stanza 1

Englenes brød
Language: Danish (Dansk)  after the Latin 
Englenes brød bliver menneskenes brød.
Brødet, himmelen giver, gør ende på spekulationerne.
Åh, hvilket mirakel: Den fattige, slaven og den ydmyge
kan leve af Herren.

Treenige gud, vi bønfalder dig,
om at besøge os, når vi ærer dig;
ad din sti går vi, der stræber
mod lyset, som du dvæler i. Amen.
