(-ONLY VIDEO-) The Pope celebrated the first Mass of his five day trip to South Korea. As thousands were receiving the Eucharist, 'Panis Angelicus' was sung by a solo artist. The song was originally written in Latin by St. Thomas Aquinas. 

PANIS ANGELICUS LYRICS
(English Translation) 

Bread of the Angels

Is made bread for mankind;
Gifted bread of Heaven
Of all imaginings the end;
Oh, thing miraculous!
This body of God will nourish
the poor, the servile, and the humble.

Thee Triune God,
We beseech;
Do us Thou visit,
Just as Thee we worship.
By Thy ways, lead us where we are heading,
to the light Thou dwellest in.

Amen
