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 sweeter 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.
