Latin text
Ave verum corpus natum de Maria Virgine
Vere passum immolatum in cruce pro homine.
Cujus latus perforatum unda fluxit aqua et sanguine.

Esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.
O Jesu dulcis! O Jesu pie!
O Jesu Filius Patris. Miserere mei. Amen.

Hail the true body, born of the Virgin Mary
You who truly suffered and were sacrificed on the cross for the sake of man.
From whose pierced side flowed water and blood:

Be a foretaste for us in the trial of death.
O Jesus sweet, O Jesus merciful,
O Jesus, Son of Mary, have mercy on me. Amen.
