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

Enkelien leivästä tulee ihmisten(kin)...
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the Latin 
Enkelien leivästä tulee ihmisten(kin) leipä. 
Todellinen taivaan leipä tulee symbolisen tilalle. 
Ihmeiden ihme: Herran ruumiista saavat ravintoa 
köyhä ja orja ja alhainen.

Jumala, kolmiyhteinen ja kuitenkin yksi, pyydämme sinulta, 
että olisit luonamme, kun sinua palvomme; 
johdata tielläsi meitä, jotka kurotamme 
kohti valoa, jossa sinä asut. Aamen.
