Bread of Angels

Here is a personal favorite of mine on this Sunday when the Mass Readings remind us once again of Our Lord's gift of the Eucharist. Young Chloe Agnew of Celtic Woman sings Panis Angelicus.

Panis angelicus
Fit panis hominum
Dat panis coelicus
Figuris terminum
O res mirabilis
Manducat Dominum
Pauper, pauper
Servus et humilis

Heavenly bread
That becomes the bread for all mankind
Bread from the angelic host
That is the end of all imaginings
Oh, miraculous thing
This body of God will nourish
Even the poorest
The most humble of servants
Even the poorest
The most humble of servants.
