O Jesu benignissime, per hoc sanctum nomen tuum esto nobis Jesus.
Insere quaesumus cordibus nostris, hoc amabile nomen tuum: ut eius dulcedine pascamur, eius amore ita ardeamus, ut moriamur in te.
Jesu suavissime, Jesu dilectissime, invocato semper hoc jucundissimo, hoc mellifluo, hoc salutifero nomine tuo, Jesu.

O most gracious Jesus, let thy holy name be so for us.
Join thy name of love to our hearts, we beseech thee: so that its sweetness may feed us, its love burns in us, and so that we may die in thee.
Jesus most sweet, Jesus most beloved, by thy name called ever delightful, flowing with honey, salvation-giving, O Jesus.
