Transfige dulcissime Domine Jesu, medullas et viscera animae meae, ut langueat et liquefiat anima mea:
solo semper amore et dulcidine saporis tui repleantur viscera animae meae.

O sweetest Lord Jesus, pierce the inmost depths of my soul, so that it may languish and melt:
so that my inmost soul will always be filled with love and thy sweet savour.

German.png German translation

Durchdringe, süßester Herr Jesus, Mark und Eingeweide meiner Seele, damit meine Seele weich wird und schmilzt:
allein immer von deiner Liebe und Süßigkeit des Geschmacks soll erfüllt sein das Innerste meiner Seele.
