Totus in corde langueo
amore Dei ardeo,

Nec tartarus me deterebit,
nec coelum separabit
a caritate Christi.

Offertoire «Tout entier dans mon cœur »
Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Tout entier dans mon cœur je languis,
Je brûle d'amour de Dieu
Je brûle d'amour divin,
Je languis tout entier.
Jamais je ne cesserai,
Mais toujours j'aimerai,
De ce feu sacré
J'enflammerai mon âme.
Le Tartare ne m'affaiblira pas,
Et ne me séparera pas du ciel
Par l'amour du Christ.
