Text heard on Sample:

Ave verum corpus natum
de Maria Virgine.
Vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine.
Cujus latus perforatum
fluxit aqua et sanguine.
Esto nobis praegustatum
mortis in examine.
Jesu dulcis! Jesu pie,
Fili Mariae.

Hail, true body,
born of the Virgin Mary,
truly suffered and slain
on a cross for man.
Whose pierced side
poured forth water and blood.
Be to us a foretaste
in the agony of death.
Sweet Jesus! Kind Jesus,
Son of Mary.

- Latin prayer attributed to Pope Innocent VI (c. 1295-1362)
  English translation by Edward Tambling.
