Find Down in Adoration Falling in:




Down in adoration falling,

This great sacrament we hail;

Over ancient forms of worship

Newer rites of grace prevail;

Faith will tell us Christ is present,

When our human senses fail.


To the everlasting Father,

And the Son who made us free,

And the Spirit, God proceeding

From them each eternally,

Be salvation, honor, blessing,

Might and endless majesty.


Tantum ergo Sacraméntum

Venerémur cérnui:

Et antíquum documéntum

Novo cedat rítui:

Praestet fides suppleméntum

Sénsuum deféctui.


Genitóri, Genitóque

Laus et jubilátio,

Salus, honor, virtus quoque

Sit et benedíctio:

Procedénti ab utróque

Compar sit laudátio.
