Latinised Hymns

Bread of the world in mercy broken

Bread of the world in mercy broken,
Wine of the soul in mercy shed,
By whom the words of life were spoken,
And in whose Death our sins are dead;

Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
Look on the tears by sinners shed;
And be thy feast to us the token
That by thy grace our souls are fed.

Bishop R. Heber

O fracte Panis, orbi clemens,
O Vinum spargens animas,
peccata nostra morte demens,
qui vera nobis praedicas,

vide dolore nos gravatos
et peccatorum lacrimas
tuaque gratia cibatos
has indica per epulas.

MM 15.1.97
