Ave, verum Corpus, natum de Maria Virgine;
Vere passum, immolatum in cruce pro homine :
Cujus latus perforatum unda fluxit et sanguine.
Esto nobis pręgustatum, in mortis examine.
Hail, true body of Christ, born of the Virgin Mary,
Verily suffered, sacrificed upon the Cross for mankind.
From whose pierced side flow water and blood,
That we may have a forestate of our death.
