*Jesu dulcis memoria

dans vera cordi gaudia:

sed super mel et omnia

ejus dulcis praesentia.

Nil canitur suavius,

nil auditur jucundius,

nil cogitatur dulcius,

quam Jesus Dei Filius. 

The sweet memory of Jesus,

Giving true joy to the heart:

But more than honey and all things

Is His sweet presence.

Nothing more delightful is sung,

Nothing more pleasing heard,

Nothing sweeter is thought,

Than Jesus, the Son of God.
