This devout setting for SATB choir of the popular Eucharistic hymn "O Salutaris Hostia," written by St. Thomas Aquinas, comes in both a Latin and an English version (you get both when you purchase this item).


O salutaris Hostia,
Quae caeli pandis ostium:
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.

Uni trinoque Domino
Sit sempiterna gloria,
Qui vitam sine termino
Nobis donet in patria.


O saving Victim, opening wide
The gate of heaven to us below.
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.

To Thy great name be endless praise
Immortal Godhead, One in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee.

Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)
