Poem by Audrey Vaughan (in English) with a brief Latin introduction (meaning: "for this is my body"). Set for SATB choir.
I have also made a French translation and a German translation of the piece (also including the Latin introduction)
which are also available on this site.

It is a meditation on the meaning of transubstantiation.

It is performed here by the Budapest Scoring choir under Peter Pejtsik.

Hoc est enim corpus meum [For this is my body]
The world's eternity lies here within my hand.
The weight of pain, of love, redemption is a sigh upon my hand,
My Christ, Lord of the infinite,
small to my comfort in my hand.
Humility of Love that tender here lies low.
White, trusting, full of care within my hand.
So, in my hand lies God.
Hoc est enim corpus meum.
