An antiphon in honour of the Blessed Sacrament.

Mozart’s version of it is really famous, but there are lots and lots of others.

The triple O at the end is a little like the Salve Regina

Ave verum Corpus natum de Maria Virgine.

Ave verum Corpus natum de Maria Virgine.

Hail true Body born of Mary Virgin

Hail to Thee, true Body, sprung ⁠From the Virgin Mary's womb

Vere passum immolatum in cruce pro homine.

Vere passum immolatum in cruce pro homine.

Truly suffered immolated on {the cross} for men

The same that on the Cross was hung, ⁠And bore for man the bitter doom.

Cujus latus perforatum fluxit aqua et sanguine

Cujus latus perforatum fluxit aqua et sanguine

{from whose} side perforated flowed water and blood

Thou whose side was pierc'd and flow'd, ⁠Both with water and with blood

Esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.

Esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.

Be {to us} food in death's trial

Suffer us to taste of Thee, ⁠In our life's last aony.

O Jesu dulcis, O Jesu pie, O Jesu, fili Mariae.

O dulcis Jesu, O pie Jesu, O Jesu, fili Mariae.

O sweet Jesus O loving Jesus, O Jesus, son of Mary

O kind, O loving One, ⁠O sweet Jesu, Mary's Son
