Tantum Ergo

1.  Tantum ergo Sacramentum
  Veneremur cernui;
Et antiquum documentum
  Novo cedat ritui;
Praestet fides supplementum
  Sensuum defectui.

2.  Genitori, Genitoque
  Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
  Sit et benedictio;
Procedenti ab utroque
  Compar sit laudatio.  Amen.

V. Panem de coelo praestitisti eis,
R. Omne delectamentum in se habentem.

Adeste Fideles

1.  Adeste, fideles,
Laeti triumphantes;
Venite, venite in Bethlehem;
Natum videte
Regem Angelorum,
Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus Dominum.

2.  Deum de Deo,
Lumen de lumine,
Gestant puellae viscera;
Deum verum,
Genitum non factum,
Venite, etc.

3.  Cantet nunc Io! 
Chorus Angelorum;
Cantet nunc aula coelestium. 
In excelsis Deo,
Venite, etc.

4.  Ergo, qui natus
Die hodierna,
Jesu! tibi sit gloria,
Patris aeterni
Verbum caro factum,
Venite, etc.

Jesus, My Lord, My God (REV.  F. W. FABER)

1.  Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all! 
  How can I love Thee as I ought? 
And how revere this wondrous gift,
  So far surpassing hope or thought?

Chorus.—­Sweet Sacrament! we Thee adore,
Oh, make us love Thee more and more,
Oh, make us love Thee more and more.

2.  Had I but Mary’s sinless heart
  To love Thee with, my dearest King,
Oh, with what bursts of fervent praise
  Thy goodness, Jesus, would I sing!

To Jesus’ Heart All Burning (REV.  A. J. CHRISTIE, S.J.)

1.  To Jesus’ Heart, all burning
  With fervent love for men,
My heart with fondest yearning
  Shall raise the joyful strain.

Chorus.—­While ages course along,
Blest be with loudest song
|| The Sacred Heart of Jesus
By every heart and tongued. ||

2.  O Heart for me on fire
  With love no man can speak,
My yet untold desire
  God gives me for Thy sake.

3.  Too true I have forsaken
  Thy flock by wilful sin;
Yet now let me be taken
  Back to Thy fold again.

Jesus, Gentlest Saviour (REV.  F. W. FABER)

1.  Jesus, gentlest Saviour! 
  God of might and power;
Thou Thyself art dwelling
  In us at this hour. 
Nature cannot hold Thee,
  Heav’n is all too strait
For Thine endless glory,
  And Thy royal state.

2.  Out beyond the shining
  Of the farthest star,
Thou art ever stretching
  Infinitely far. 
Yet the hearts of children
  Hold what worlds cannot,
And the God of wonders
  Loves the lowly spot.
