O sacrum convivium



O sacrum convivium!
in quo Christus sumitur:
recolitur memoria passionis ejus:
mens impletur gratia:
et futuræ gloriæ nobis pignus datur,
Alleluia.

O sacred banquet!
in which Christ is received
the memory of his passion is recalled,
and the pledge of future glory
is given to us. Alleluia.

Listen to Olivier Messiaen's setting of O sacrum convivium.
