O suavitas et dulcedo
humani generis, Iesu Christe,
qui pro nostra salute
in cruce extensus fuisti,
per omnia membra et ossa
corporis tui, quae distenta
in te et numerata fuerunt,
rogo to, piissime Iesu,
ut me miserum
sic tibi iungas,
quod per prospera et adversa
huius saeculi a te nunquam
possim separari. Amen.

Oh, the sweetness, and delight
of the human race, Jesus Christ,
you who for our salvation
were stretched out on the Cross,
by all the limbs and bones
of your body, which were stretched out
in you, and were numbered,
I ask you, O most merciful Jesus,
to join my unhappy self
to you thus,
that through prosperity or adversity
of this world, I may never
be separated from you. Amen.
Translation by Edward Tambling
