Tantum Ergo Sacramentum (Down In Adoration Falling)

Tantum ergo Sacramentum

Veneremur cernui:

Et antiquum documentum

Novo cedat ritui:

Praestet fides supplementum

Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque

Laus et iubilatio,

Salus, honor, virtus quoque

Sit et benedictio:

Procedenti ab utroque

Compar sit laudatio.


Down in adoration falling,
Lo! the sacred Host we hail,
Lo! oe’r ancient forms departing
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.

To the everlasting Father,
And the Son Who reigns on high
With the Holy Spirit proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honor blessing,
Might and endless majesty.

Jesus, Lamb of God. Saving Love for all. Lord of Heaven and earth.

I bow to you.

I bow to you.

I bow to you.

I bow to you.


I guess no matter what point in my life I’m at, Tantum Ergo will always bring me back. I might not be fine. I might still be broken, as I am now, but they always put things in perspective for me. Always. It is such a declaration of faith andtrust and belief, that it is hard to ignore.

My favorite part has to be “Prastet fides supplementum, Sensuum defectui.” It explains what faith is and you can reject it all you want. But me? I choose to accept it.

Like I said, I’m not fine; but I have to rest in the Lord for a bit right now before I can figure it out.

In Christ and Mary,
Kate ❤
