Anaustia is a popular tune, probably from around the XVII century, found in the archives of the Bolivian Jesuit Missions. This kind of Spanish, Latinamerican Baroque music, based on a local tune, was quite common in the 16th and 17th centuries. The words of the tune are in a local Indian language, the Chiquitano language. Anaustia Santisimo Sacramento, Praised be to the blessed sacrament. 

The lyrics are:
Anaustia Santísimo Sacramento
naqui ane ycu naltar taito
Virgen Santa Maria.

Niñe monco oxima nanene
qui cheseña onumo oboi
inicusinitaña ninahiti, 
Amen Jesu
