O sacrum convivium

Thomas Tallis

O sacrum convivium in quo sumitur;
recolitur memoria passionis eius,
mens impletur gratia;
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.
O sacred banquet, wherein Christ is received;
the memorial of his passion is renewed;
the soul is filled with grace;
and a pledge of future glory is given to us.

Antiphon to the Magnificat for Corpus Christi
