Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Sacrum convivium

Sacrum convivium

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Sacrum convivum,
in quo Dei Filius,
Christus Dominus crucifixus,
pascit Ecclesiam mirando mysterio.

Sub pane sacro dans Corpus
illud suum verum,
quod pependit in Crucis ligno.

Sub vino sacro dans Sanguinem
suum illum verum,
qui effusus est pro peccatis mundi.

Sic adest Christus in Coena,
non sola gratia,
no solo spiritu,
no absens corpore.

Sed quia sedit ad dexteram patris,
in coelestibus,
implens omnia vere praesens
est Deus et Homo,
potens omnia, verax in verbo suo.

Cum inquit dicens:
Hoc est corpus meum,
quod pro vobis traditur:
Accipite, comedite.

Ergo in Coeno sacratissima
Corpus Domini manducant omnes Christiani,
digni et indigni,

Digni edunt ore et fide ad vitam aeternam.

Indigni edunt solo ore sine fide ad mortis judicium.
