1 Hail, true Body, born of Mary,
by a wondrous virgin-birth.
You who on the Cross were offered
to redeem us all on earth;
2 You whose side became a fountain
pouring forth your precious blood,
give us now, and at our dying,
your own self to be our food.
O kindest Jesu, O gracious Jesu,
O Jesu, O Jesu, blessed Mary's Son.
