Beth Nielsen Chapman – Panis Angelicus lyrics

Panis angelicus
Fit panis hominum
Dat Panis coelicus
Figuris terminum
O res mirabilis!
Manducat Dominum
Pauper, servus et humilis.

Te trina Deitas, unaque poscimus,
Sic nos tu visita, sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas duc nos quo tendimus
Ad lucem quam inhabitas. Amen

Bread of Angels,
Made the bread of men;
The Bread of heaven
Puts an end to all symbols:
A thing wonderful!
The Lord becomes our food:
Poor, a servant, and humble.
We beseech Thee,
Godhead One in Three
That Thou wilt visit us,
As we worship Thee,
Lead us through Thy ways,
We who wish to reach the light
In which Thou dwellest.
