O sacrum convivium! 

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992)


 

Original Text

O sacrum convivium,
in quo Christus sumitur;
recolitur memoria passionis ejus;
mens impletur gratia;
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.
Alleluia. 

 

 

English

O sacred banquet,
wherein Christ is received;
the memorial of his passion is renewed;
the soul is filled with grace;
and a pledge of future glory is given to us.
Alleluia.

O banquet sacré
où l'on reçoit le Christ !
On célèbre le mémorial de sa passion,
l'âme est remplie de grâce et,
de la gloire future, le gage nous est donné.
Alleluia
