34  Tu mentis delectatio,
amoris consummatio,
tu mea gloriatio,
Jesu, mundi salvatio.

36  Sequar quocumque ieris,
michi tolli non poteris,
cum meum cor abstuleris,
Jesu, laus nostri generis.

34  You are the delight of my mind,
The high point of love,
I glory in you,
Jesus, Saviour of the world.

36  Wherever you go,I will follow,
Nothing can separate you from me,
Since you took possession of my heart,
Jesus, the praise of mankind.

Translation by James Gibb
