Heavenly Bread

Versions: #1#2
Heavenly bread
That becomes the bread for all mankind;
Bread from the angelic host
That is the end of all imaginings;
Oh, miraculous thing!
This body of God will nourish
Even the poorest,
The most humble of servants.
Even the poorest,
The most humble of servants.

Joseph, Thank you for your wonderfully understanding and sensitive translation of Panis Angelicus from Latin to English. I will be singing the work in church (in latin) and this translation will help the members immeasurably! Thank you. Raymond B
