Latin lyrics:

Adoro te devote, latens Deitas,
quae sub his figuris vere latitas:
tibi se cor meum totum subiicit,
quia te contemplans totum deficit.

O memoriale mortis Domini!
panis vivus, vitam praestans homini!
praesta meae menti de te vivere
et te illi semper dulce sapere.

Jesu, quem velatum nunc aspicio,
Oro, fiat illud quod tam sitio:
Ut te revelata cernens facie,
Visu sim beátus tuæ gloriæ.

Poetic English translation:

Hidden here before me,
Lord, I worship you,
Hidden in these symbols,
yet completely true.
Lord, my soul surrenders,
longing to obey,
And in contemplation
wholly faints away.

Record of the Passion
when the Lamb was slain,
Living bread that brings us
back to life again:
Feed me with your presence,
make me live on you;
Let that lovely fragrance
fill me through and through.

Jesus, for the present seen
as through a mask,
Give me what I thirst for,
give me what I ask:
Let me see your glory
in a blaze of light,
And instead of blindness give me,
Lord, my sight.
