Lyrics

Ad regias Agni dapes, stolis amicti candidis
post transitum maris Rubri, Christo canamus principi.

Divina cujus caritas sacrum propinat sanguinem,
almique membra corporis amor sacerdo immolat.

Victor subactis caritas inferis,
trophaea Christus explicat et coeloque aperto.
—Latin Hymn, 1632

At the Lamb’s royal banquet, clothed in white robes, and with the journey through the Red Sea behind us, let us sing to Christ our King. His divine love gives us his sacred blood to drink, and his love, priest-like, offers us his loving body as our sacrificial food. Now triumphant over hell Christ displays his trophies and opens to us the gates of heaven.
—Translation by Jason A. Anderson
