1  Gesù, sommo conforto,
Tu sei tutt'il mio amore,
E'l mio beato porto
E Santo Redentore.

R.  O gran bontà! dolce pietà!
Felice quel che teco unito stà.

2  Gesù, tu hai il mondo,
Soavemente pieno,
D'amor santo e giocondo,
Ch'ogni cor fa sereno.

1  Jesus, highest comfort,
You are my whole love,
And my blessed refuge
And Holy Redeemer.

R.  O great goodness! sweet mercy!
Happy are those who are united with you.

2  Jesus, you have made the world
Sweetly full
Of holy and joyful love,
So that every heart is serene.
