O Salutaris Hostia

O Salutaris Hostia!

O Saving Victim, open wide

Quae caeli pandis ostium:

The gate of heaven to man below.

Bella premunt Hostilia,

Our foes press on from every side;

Da robur, fer auxilium.

Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.

Uni trinoque Domino,

To Thy great name be endless praise,

Sit sempiterna gloria;

Immortal Godhead one in three!

Qui vitam sine termino,

O grant us endless length of days.

Nobis donet in patria. Amen.

In our true native land with Thee. Amen.
