We don't have cable, so no EWTN for us- thanks, Elena!

For our non-Catholic readers: the song Mr. Domingo is singing is the Eucharistic hymn "Panis Angelicus".
The lyrics are:
Panis angelicus
fit panis hominum;
Dat panis caelicus
figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis!
manducat Dominum
Pauper, servus, et humilis.
Te trina Deitas
unaque poscimus:
Sic nos tu visita,
sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas
duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas.

In English:

Bread of Angels,
made the bread of men;
The Bread of heaven
puts an end to all symbols:
A thing wonderful!
The Lord becomes my food:
I, a poor servant, and humble.
We beseech Thee,
Godhead One in Three
That Thou wilt visit us,
as we worship Thee,
lead us through Thy ways,
We who wish to reach the light
in which Thou dwellest.

Thanks Sal for the translation. Panis Angelicus has been a favorite of mine since high school - my choir sang it for contest. I knew what some of the words meant, but I had never read a complete translation. How beautiful!!
