Latin.png Latin text

Ecce patris verbum
celso descendit olympo
arcanis verbis nos dulcis
potus & esca Deus
nos dulcis ambrosia
mellito ut nectare pascat
clarescatque pii verus amantis amor
mors horrenda malis
vita beata bonis.

Ergo humiles properate
sacris discumbite mensis
et quisque accipiat
corpus amantis amans.
