 Amor Iesu dulcissime,
 Qui beatorum gloria
 et Angelorum gaudium es in cælis,
 in cibum nostri,
 et viatorum,
 escam in terris te dedisti,
 quis vidit unquam,
 quis audivit talia
 fit Homo ipse Deus

O Love of the sweetest Jesus,
who is the glory of the blessed
and the joy of the Angels in heaven.
Our nourishment
and waybread
in these countries you have given.
Has anyone ever seen such,
has anyone heard of such:
God himself becomes man.
