ST. THOMAS AQUINAS’ BEAUTIFUL EUCHARISTIC HYMN :
ADORO TE DEVOTE (I ADORE THEE DEVOUTLY).

 

Dear brethren in Christ, here you have a beautiful Latin Eucharistic hymn attributed to St. Thomas Aquinas which professes the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist.

It is usually prayed (or sung) during the Octave (8 days) after Corpus Christi and also every Thursday to commemorate the Institution of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. A beautiful prayer of adoration, faith and love for Jesus’ Real, True and Substantial Presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Hope you meditate on it frequently!

Happy solemnity of Corpus Christi and a Blessed Octave ahead to you and your family!

Below is the Latin text. English translation is taken from the Daily Roman Missal (Midwest Theological Foundation, edited by Fr. James Socías)

Latin text:

  1. Adóro te devóte, latens Déitas, quæ sub his figúris vere látitas. Tibi se cor meum totum súbiicit, quia, te contémplans, totum déficit.
  2. 2. Visus, tactus, gustus in te fállitur, sed audítu solo tuto créditur. Credo quidquid dixit Dei Fílius: nil hoc verbo veritátis vérius.
  3. 3. In Cruce latébat sola Déitas; at hic latet simul et humánitas. Ambo tamen credens atque cónfitens, peto quod petívit latro pœnitens.
  4. 4. Plagas, sicut Thomas, non intúeor; Deum tamen meum te confíteor. Fac me tibi semper magis crédere, in te spem habére, te dilígere.
  5. 5. O memoriále mortis Dómini! Panis vivus vitam præstans hómini, præsta meæ menti de te vívere, et te illi semper dulce sápere.
  6. 6. Pie pellicáne, Iesu Dómine, me immúndum munda tuo sánguine: cuius una stilla salvum fácere totum mundum quit ab omni scélere.
  7. 7. Iesu, quem velátum nunc aspício, oro, fiat illud quod tam sítio; ut te reveláta cernens fácie, visu sim beátus tuæ glóriæ.
