Bone Jesu, verbum Patris,
splendor paternae gloriae,
in quem desiderant angeli prospicere,
doce me facere voluntatem tuam,
ut a Spiritu tuo bono deductus
ad beatam illam perveniam civitatem,
ubi est dies aeternus et unus omnium spiritus,
ubi est certa securitas, et secura aeternitas,
et aeterna tranquilitas et tranquilla felicitas,
et felix suavitas, et suavis jucunditas,
ubi tu Deus cum Patre et Spiritu sancto vivis et regnas,
per infinita saeculorum saecula!

O good Jesus, Word of the Father,
splendour of the Father's glory,
on whom the angels long to gaze,
teach me to do Your will,
so that, led by Your kind spirit
I might aspire to Your blessed city,
where there is everlasting day and one spirit for all,
where there is certain assurance and an assured eternity,
and eternal peace and peaceful happiness,
and happy sweetness, and certain delight,
where You, God, with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns
through infinite ages of ages,
