Panis Angelicus

The things on YouTube - Some great, some scary, some good, some horrible.
Andrea Bocelli sings Panis Angelicus


Here are the words:
Latin text
Panis angelicus
fit panis hominum;
Dat panis coelicus
figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis!
Manducat Dominum
Pauper, servus et humilis.

Te trina Deitas
unaque poscimus:
Sic nos tu visita,
sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas
duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas.
Amen.

English
The Bread of Angels
becomes the bread of men;
The Bread of heaven
ends all prefigurations:
What wonder!
a poor and humble servant
consumes him, the Lord.

We beg of You,
God, One in Three
that you visit us,
as we worship You.
By your ways,
lead us who seek
the light in which You dwell.
Amen.

For another version - here is Pavarotti and Sting. Different, but nicely done. But, they only sing the first verse.
