Texts and Translations

Latin.png Latin text

Bone pastor, panis vere,
Jesu, nostri miserere:
Tu nos pasce, nos tuere:
Tu nos bona fac videre,
in terra viventium.
Tu qui cuncta scis et vales,
Qui nos pascis hic mortales,
Tuos ibi commensales,
Cohaeredes et sodales
Fac sanctorum civium.

German.png German translation

Guter Hirte, wahres Brot,
Jesus, erbarm dich unser:
Du weide uns, schütze uns,
Du laß uns das Gute sehen
im Land der Lebenden.

English.png English translation

Good shepherd, true bread,
Jesus, have mercy on us:
Feed and protect us:
Make us see good things
in the land of the living.
You who know and can do all things
Who feed us here as mortals,
Make us your table-guests there
Your co-heirs and companions
of the holy citizens of heaven.

Buon pastore, pane vero,
o Gesù, abbi pietà di noi,
nutrici, difendici,
facci vedere i beni
nella terra dei viventi.
