Title: O bone Jesu
Original text and translations
(The text appears as one long sentence in the source, without punctuation or capital letters except for ‘Iesu’, so the text division is editorial; the third and fourth sentences are apparently quoted from a prayer for mercy written by St Augustine.)
O bone Iesu, salvator mundi, miserere nobis.
Gentle Jesus, saviour of the world, have mercy on us.
