O Jesu nomen dulce
Nomen admirabile
Nomen confortans
Quid enim canitur suavius
Quid auditur jucundius
Quid cogitatur dulcius
Quam Jesus Dei filius.

O nomen Jesu, verus animae cibus
In ore mel, in aure melos,
in corde laetitia mea
Tuum itaque nomen, dulcissime Jesu,
in aeternum in ore meo portabo.

O Jesus, sweet name!
Admirable name!
Comforting name!
What truly is sung more sweetly?
What is heard more pleasantly?
What is thought of more dear?
Who but Jesus, God’s Son?

O name of Jesus, true food of the soul!
Honey in my mouth, song in my ear,
source of delight in my heart!
Therefore your name, sweetest Jesus,
I will carry in my mouth into eternity!
