PH108

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.
