O bone et dulcis Domine Jesus

Language: Latin

O bone et dulcis Domine Jesus,
credo firmiter et indubitanter,
quidquid sacrosancta credit ecclesia,
deprecor tuam pietatem et clementiam.
Fac me vivere et mori in tua fide.
Confiteor enim coram majestate tua
et sanctis angelis tuis, quod servus tuus sum,
et quidquid mihi accedat tuus sum fidelis.

Ô bon et doux Seigneur Jésus‑Christ

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Ô bon et doux Seigneur Jésus-Christ,
Je crois fermement et incontestablement
Tout ce que la sacro-sainte église croit,
Je prie pour ta pitié et ta clémence.
Fais-moi vivre et mourir dans ta foi.
Car je confesse devant ta majesté
Et tes saints anges que je suis ton serviteur,
Et quoi qu'il m'arrive je suis ton fidèle.
