1  Jesu benignissime,
fons amoris casti,
tu mortales homines
in tantum amasti.

2  Quod te ipsum credulis
in cibum donasti,
Et ut tui memores
te sumant, mandsti.

3  Christe benignissime,
Fili summi Dei,
Precor indignissimi,
miserere mei.

4  Tantum caritatis da,
fidei et spei,
ut digne mysterium
sumam tantei rei.
