O bone Jesu, miserere nobis,
quia tu creasti nos,  tu redemisti nos
sanguine tuo praetiosissimo.

Because you created us, you have redeemed us
With your most precious blo,Od.

O gentle Jesu, show to us your mercy:
For you have created us,
through you we are redeemed
and are saved by your holy sacrifice.
