O pie pelicane, Jesu dulcissime, salus et vita,
qui roseo cruore nos reficis et carne tua pascis,
veni et moesta corda ab omnia macula semper emunda.

O worshipful pelican, most sweet Jesus, salvation and life,
who refreshes us with thy rosy blood and feeds us with thy flesh,
come and by your sorrowful heart cleanse us from all stain for evermore.
