In odorem unguentorum tuorum currimus ad te,
Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum, quem amamus,
quem toto corde optamus, et cupimus faciem tuam videre.
Ne confundas nos, sed fac nobiscum secundum misericordiam tuam.

We run to you for your sweet fragrance.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we love,
whom we desire with all our heart, and desire to see your face:
Put us not to confusion, but deal with us according to thy mercy.
