Ave verum corpus natum Hail, true Body, truly born

de Maria Virgine; of the Virgin Mary mild.

vere passum, immolatum Truly offered, wracked and torn,

in cruce pro homine: on the Cross for all defiled,

cujus latus perforatum from Whose love-pierced, sacred side

fluxit aqua et sanguine: flowed Thy true Blood's saving tide:

esto nobis praegustatum be a foretaste sweet to me

mortis in examine. in my death's great agony.
