  Adoro Te
Lyrics

Adoro Te

Music – traditional plainchant arranged

by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)

Words trad.

Adoro te devote, latens Deitas          I devoutly adore you, O hidden Godhead,

Quae sub his figuris vere latitas        That truly are concealed beneath these vain imaginings.

Tibi se cor meum totum subjicit         My whole heart submits to you,

Quia te contemplans totum defecit    For, in contemplating you, it loses itself utterly

O memoriale mortis Domini               O memorial of our Lord's death!

Panis vivus vitam praestans homini   Living bread that gives life to man,

Praesta meae menti de te vivere     Grant my soul to live on you,

Et te illi semper dulce sapere           And to savour your sweetness for ever.

Adoro te devote, adoro                  I devoutly adore you, I adore you

Jesu quem velatum nunc aspicio      Jesus, whom now I see as if behind a veil,

Oro fiat illud quod tam sitio             I pray that what I so desire may come to pass,

Ut te revelata cernens facie           That, on beholding you with your face unveiled,

Visu sim beatus tuae gloriae           I may be blessed by the sight of your glory.

O memoriale mortis Domini              O memorial of our Lord's death!

O memoriale mortis                       O memorial of death

Adoro te, devote latens Deitas        I devoutly adore you, O hidden Godhead,

Quae sub his figuris vere latitas      That truly are concealed beneath these vain imaginings.

Tibi se cor meum totum subjicit     My whole heart submits to you,

Quia te contemplans totum defecit For, in contemplating you, it loses itself utterly

Adoro te, adoro                           I  adore you, I adore you
