Tantum Ergo

1. Down in adoration falling,
Lo! The sacred Host we hail;
Lo! O’er ancient forms departing,
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.

2. To the everlasting Father,
And the Son who reigns on high,
With the Holy Spirit proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honor, blessing,
Might and endless majesty.



1.Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui,
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui;
Praestet fides supplementum,
Sensuum defectui.

2. Genitori Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtue quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque. 
Compar sit laudatio. Amen.
