21  Jesu summa benignitas
Mira cordis jucunditas,
incomprehensa bonitas,
tua me stringit charitas.

22  Bonum mihi diligere
Jesum, non ultra quaerere:
Mihi prorsus deficere
Ut illi queam vivere.

English.png English translation

21  O kindness, infinite, supreme!
My joy and true repose!
O depth of charity extreme,
Which no abatement knows!
22  'Tis good that I my love should give
Save Thee to none beside ;
And dying to myself, should live
For Jesus crucified!

Translation by Edward Caswall
