ave verum corpus lyrics – all angels

ave verum corpus natum
de maria virgine.
vere p*ssum immolatum
in cruce pro homine:
cuius latum perforatum
aqua fluxit et sanguine.
esto n*bis praegustatum
in mortis examine.

hail, true body, truly born
of the virgin mary mild.
truly offered, wracked and torn,
on the cross for all defiled,
from whose love-pierced, sacred side
flowed thy true blood’s saving tide:
be a foretaste sweet to me
in my death’s great agony
