Full text: 

O sacrum convivium
In quo Christus sumitur.
Recolitur memoria
Passionis eius, 
Mens impletur gratia
Et futurae gloriae
Nobis pignus datur.

O quam suavis est, domine, spiritus tuus.

Veni sancte spiritus
Et emitte caelitus
Lucis tuae radium.

Caro cibus, sanguis potus,
Manet tamen Christus totus
Sub utraque specie.

English translation: 

O holy banquet, in which Christ is received. The memory of His Passion is renewed, the soul is filled with grace and a token of the future glory is given to us.

O how sweet your spirit is, o Lord.

Come Holy Ghost and emanate the ray of your light from above.

Flesh becomes food, blood becomes drink, yet, He still remains completely Christ in both natures.
