Do you know what we are singing in Latin when the priest breaks the bread during mass (which, by the way, is called the Fraction Rite)? We are singing “Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.” And the last time we end with “grant us peace.”
The English is derived from the Latin that we sing in mass.
If you are interested, here is a handy pronunciation guide.
Agnus Dei qui tollis
Ah-nyoos Deh-ee kwee tawl-lees
dona nobis pacem
daw-nah naw-bees pah-chehm
Sing to the Glory of God, (in Latin, too!)
