Túa Iésu diléctio,
gráta méntis reféctio,
réplet síne fastídio,
dans fámem desidério.

Qui te gústant esúriunt,
qui bíbunt ádhuc sítiunt,
desideráre nésciunt,
nísi Iésum quem díligunt.

English.png English translation

Your love, Jesus,
is welcome refreshment to the spirit;
it restores without trouble,
giving hunger to longing.

The hungry taste you,
those who drink were thirsty before,
they have no further desires
besides Jesus, whom they love.
Translation by Mick Swithinbank

Deine Liebe, Jesus,
ist willkommenen Erquickung des Geistes
schenkt Erfüllung ohne Überdruß,
gibt der Sehnsucht Hunger.

Die dich kosten, hungern,
die trinken, dürsten immer noch,
sie wissen nichts zu ersehnen,
außer Jesus, den sie lieben.
