Text and English Translation

Tu dulcis, O bone Iesu; tu suavis, O alma Maria; tu dulcis ad consolandum; tu suavis ad lætantificandum, tu benignus ad indulgendum, tu gratiosa ad intercendendum; tu fortis ad protegendum, gloriossima Maria, tu solus potens ad salvandum, piisime Iesu.

Quam bonum in unum esse ad te collaudandum et benedicendum, quam bonum et quam iocundum in unum esse ad te glorificandum, O beata Maria.

Cantabo semper de te, Domine; cogitabo semper de te, domina; exultabo in te, rex angelorum; te magnificabo cum Filio, regina cœlorum.

Ave ergo, amor cordis mei Iesu; salve ergo, salus mea Iesu, amor cordis mei Iesu.
Tu mater sancta,
Tu mater pia,
Tu mater clemens,
In hac mundi via,
Impetra veniam,
Obtine gratiam,
Ut Iesus filius,
Donet gloriam.

You are sweet, O good Jesus; you are delightful, O nourishing Mary; You are sweet in consoling us, you are delightful in gladdening; You are good in pardoning, You are favored in intercession; you are strong in protecting, most glorious Mary, You alone are powerful in saving, O holiest Jesus.

How good it is to be united in praising and blessing you; how good and joyous is it to be united in glorifying you, O blessed Mary.

I will always sing of You, O Lord; I will always meditate on you, O queen; I will exult in You, King of the Angels; I will magnify you with your Son, O queen of the heavens.

So hail Jesus, love of my heart; hail Jesus, my salvation,
the love of my heart.
You, holy mother,
good mother,
merciful mother,
in this earthly journey
give us your favour,
provide grace,
so that Jesus you Son
may grant us His glory.
