Full text: 

In amara
Crucis ara
Fudisti rivos sanguinis
Iesu Christe
Rex benigne
Consors paterni luminis.

Sanguis Christi
Qui fuisti
Peremptor hostis invidi
Fac nos ire
Et venire
Ad cenam agni providi.

English translation: 

On the bitter altar of the Cross
thou didst shed streams ofblood,
Jesus Christ, kindly king,
Sharer in thy Father's light.

Blood of Christ, that was
the slayer of the jealous foe,
make us depart and come
To the supper of the foresighted Lamb.
