Ave Verum Corpus

English translation:  
Hail, true body, 
Born of the virgin Mary; 
Who has truly suffered, slaughtered 
On the Cross for humanity. 
Whose side was pierced, 
Pouring out water and blood. 
Be a foretaste for us 
During our ordeal of death. 
O sweet, o holy, 
O Jesus Son of Mary, 
Have mercy on me. Amen.
