*Ave, verum corpus natum
ex Maria Virgine:
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine:
cuius latus perforatum
vero fluxit sanguine:
esto nobis praegustatum,
in mortis examine.
Hail the true Body, born
of the Virgin Mary:
You who truly suffered and were sacrificed
on the cross for the sake of humanity;
From whose pierced flank
blood truly flowed:
Be a foretaste for us
in the trial of death.
