LYRICS

O Salutaris Hostia
Quae caeli pandis ostium: 
Bella premunt hostilia, 
Da robur, fer auxilium. 

Uni trinoque Domino 
Sit sempiterna gloria, 
Qui vitam sine termino 
Nobis donet in patria.

O saving Victim, opening wide 
The gate of heaven to all us below: 
Our foes press on from every side; 
Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow. 

To Thy great Name be endless praise, 
Immortal Godhead, One in Three! 
O grant us endless length of days 
With Thee in our true country.
