Antes que comáis a Dios
En este sacro manjar
Alma, será bien pensar
Quién es Dios y quién sois vos.

Antes que, en vuestra posada
recibáis al Rey del cielo
Vivid, alma, con recelo
Si estáis bien aparejada.

Y pues recibís a Dios
En este sacro manjar
Alma, será bien pensar
Quién es Dios y quién sois vos.
 

German.png German translation

Bevor ihr Gott eßt
in dieser heiligen Speise,
Seele, wird es gut sein, zu bedenken,
wer Gott ist und wer ihr seid.

Bevor ihr in eurer Herberge
den König des Himmels empfangt,
lebt, Seele, mit Ängstlichkeit,
ob ihr gut disponiert seid.

Und da ihr Gott empfangt
in dieser heiligen Speise,
Seele, wird es gut sein, zu bedenken,
wer Gott ist und wer ihr seid.

Before you eat god
in this sacred meal,
you should think
who is really God and who is really you.

Before you receive in your inn
the Heaven's King.
Let your soul live in some anxiety
of being well disposed.

And then, when you receive god
in this sacred meal,
you should think
who is really God and who is really you.
