(Latin text)
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.

(English translation)
O saving victim
who open the gate of heaven,
hostile wars press on us:
give strength, bring aid.
To the Lord, three in one,
be everlasting glory,
for life without end
he gives us in (his) Kingdom.
