Ecce Panis Angelorum

Ecce Panis Angelorum, Factus cibus viatorum

Vere panis filiorum, Non mittendus canibus.

In figuris praesignatur, Cum Isaac immolatur,

Agnus Paschae deputatur, Datur manna patribus.

Bone pastor, panis vere, Jesu, nostri miserere: Tu nos pasce, nos tuere,

Tu nos bona fac videre In terra viventium. Tu qui cuncta scis et vales,
Qui nos pascis hic mortales: Tuos ibi commensales,

Coheredes et sodales Fac sanctorum civium.

Amen. Alleluia.

Lo! The angel's food is given to the pilgrim who has striven;

See the children's bread from heaven, which on dogs may not be spent.

The the ancient types fulfilling, Isaac bound, a victim willing,

Paschal lamb, its lifeblood spilling, manna to the fathers sent.

Very bread, good shepherd, tend us, Jesu, of your love befriend us,

You refresh us, you defend us, your eternal goodness send us

in the land of life to see.

You who all the can and know, who on earth such food bestow,

Grant us with your saints, though lowest, where the heavenly feast you show,

fellow heirs and guests to be.

Amen. Alleluia.
