Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

730. Ave Verum

Ave, verum Corpus natum de María Virgine:
Vere passum immolátum in cruce pro hómine:
Cujus latus perforátum fluxit aqua et sánguine:,
Esto nobis praegustátum mortis in exámine.
O Jesu dulcis!
O Jesu pie!
O Jesu fili Maríae.
