Ave verum corpus natum ex Maria Virgine
Verum passum immolatum
In cruce pro homine
Cujus latus perforatum,
unda fluxit sanguine:
Esto nobis praegustatum,
in mortis examine.
O dulcis, O pie, O Jesu Fili Mariae,
Miserere mei. Amen.


Hail, true Body, born of the Virgin Mary,
Who has truly suffered,
was sacrificed on the cross for mortals,
Whose side was pierced,
whence flowed water and blood:
Be for us a foretaste of heaven
during our final examining.
O Jesu sweet, O Jesu pure, Jesu son of Mary
Have mercy upon me. Amen.
