Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Túa Iésu diléctio,
gráta méntis reféctio,
réplet síne fastídio,
dans fámem desidério.

Qui te gústant esúriunt,
qui bíbunt ádhuc sítiunt,
desideráre nésciunt,
nísi Iésum quem díligunt.

by Mick Swithinbank

Your love, Jesus,
is welcome refreshment to the spirit;
it restores without trouble,
giving hunger to longing. (granting the hungry their desire?)

The hungry taste you,
those who drink were thirsty before,
they have no further desires
besides Jesus, whom they love.

German.png German translation

Deine Liebe, Jesus,
ist willkommenen Erquickung des Geistes
schenkt Erfüllung ohne Überdruß,
gibt der Sehnsucht Hunger.

Die dich kosten, hungern,
die trinken, dürsten immer noch,
sie wissen nichts zu ersehnen,
außer Jesus, den sie lieben.
