O Sacramentum pietatis!
O signum unitatis!
O vinculum charitatis!
Jesu dulcissime, quam felix est, quem¹ satias,
quam beatus, quem¹ inebrias.
Nihil desiderat, nisi Jesum quem¹ diligit
transfige dulcissime Domine Jesu,
transfige medullas et viscera
animae meae suavissimo
ac saluberrimo amoris tui² vulnere³,
ut te solum adoret, te solum cupiat
et tibi semper adhaereat
et in aeternum te possideat.

¹ emendatum e "quam"
² emendatum e "tuae"
³ emendatum e "vulnerae"

German.png German translation

O Sakrament der Frömmigkeit!
O Zeichen der Einheit!
O Band der Liebe!
Süßester Jesus, wie glücklich ist der, den du sättigst,
wie selig der, den du trunken machst.
Er ersehnt nichts außer Jesus, den er liebt.
Bilde um, süßester Herr Jesus,
bilde um Mark und Innerstes
meiner Seele durch die süßeste
und heilbringendste Wunde deiner Liebe,
damit sie dich allein anbete, dich allein begehre
und dir immer anhänge
und dich auf ewig besitze.

O sacrament of devotion!
O sign of unity!
O bond of charity!
Most sweet Jesus, how happy is the one who is full of you,
how happy who is drunk with you.
That person wants nothing, but the love of Jesus.
Pierce, sweet Lord Jesus,
Pierce the inmost parts
of my most sweet soul
with the joyous and healthful wound of Thy love;
So that it adores only you, only desires you,
and may always adhere to you
and may possess you for ever.
