Text & English Translation
O dulcis Iesu, tu es fons pietatis, tu es fons bonitatis, fonsque amoris, et apud te est fons vitæ, O dulcis Iesu.
Bibat ergo in te solo anima mea, ad te solum confugiat, ad te die nocteque clamet, quia in te solo vera est quies, vera dulcedo, veraque pax et vita.
Præbe mihi, amantissime Iesu, tuum dulcissimum lumen; infunde, suavissime Domine, infunde in animam meam amabilissime tuæ lucis scintillam, ut sic illustrata irradiataque valeat te videre, te amare, amando te frui, fruendo te possidere, cum sanctis tuis in æternum. O dulcis Iesu.
O sweet Jesus, You are the source of devotion, You are the source of goodness, and the source of love, and in You is the source of life, O sweet Jesus.
So let my soul drink only from You, let it seek refuge only in You, let it cry to You day and night; for in You alone is true rest, true sweetness, and true peace and life.
Most beloved Jesus, grant me your sweetest light; lovingly infuse, most pleasant Lord, infuse the ray of Your light into my soul, so that, thus illuminated and radiant, it may be worthy to see You, to love You, to enjoy You in love, to possess You in enjoyment with your saints forever. O sweet Jesus.
