Dulce nomen Jesu, dulcissima dulcedo,
o vera salus, o vera vita, o spes unica animae mea,
o bone Jesu, te adoro creator et redemptor meus,
te humiliter deprecor, o reverenter exoro:
parce peccatis a voluptatibus seculi
et munda corda nostra a voluptatibus seculi.
O dulcis Jesu, o bone Jesu, ad te confugio,
ad te qui miserando bonitatem tuam ostendis,
ad te qui miserando toto cordis affectu venio
et Majestatem tuam adoro.
Ergo mi Jesu bone, ne permittas me damnari
quem tu de nihilo creasti.

Sweet name of Jesus, sweetest sweetness,
true salvation, true life, sole hope of my soul,
good Jesus, I adore you, my creator and redeemer,
I humbly beseech you, reverently entreat you:
spare [us] from sin and from the temptations of the world,
and cleanse our hearts from the temptations of the world.
Sweet Jesus, good Jesus, in you I take refuge,
to you who extend your mercy to him who suffers,
to you I come, my whole heart moved by a spirit of contrition,
and I adore your majesty.
Thence, my good Jesus, let me not be damned,
you who created me from nothingness.

Translation by Campelli

Süßer Name Jesu, süßeste Süßigkeit,
o wahres Heil, o wahres Leben, o einzige Hoffnung meiner Seele,
o guter Jesus, ich bete dich an als meinen Schöpfer und Erlöser,
ich bitte dich demütig, o ich flehe dich ehrfürchtig an:
Verschone vor Sünden von den Gelüsten der Welt
und reinige unsere Herzen von den Gelüsten der Welt.
O süßer Jesus, o guter Jesus, zu dir nehme ich Zuflucht,
zu dir, der du im Erbarmen deine Güte zeigst,
mit ganzer Regung des Herzens komme ich
und bete deine Hoheit an.
Laß also, mein guter Jesus, nicht zu, daß ich verdammt werde,
den du aus dem Nichts geschaffen hast.
