Text

TAntum ergo Sacramentum

veneremur cernui,

et antiquum documentum

nouo cedant ritui

praestet fides supplementum

sensuum defectui.

 

[1585a]

Translation

Hence so great a Sacrament,

let us venerate with heads bowed,

and let the old practise

give way to the new rite,

let faith provide a supplement

for the failure of the senses.
