To you, Champion Leader and Lord, the Vanquisher of Hades, I, your creature and servant, offer a song of praise, for you have delivered me from eternal death. But as you have inextinguishable loving-kindness, deliver me from all dangers that can be, that I may cry to you: Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me.
Creator of angels and Lord of hosts, as of old you opened the ear and tongue of the deaf and dumb, likewise open now my perplexed mind and tongue to the praise of your most holy name that I may cry to you:
Jesus, most wonderful, angels’ astonishment!
Jesus, most powerful, forefathers’ deliverance!
Jesus, most sweet, Patriarch’s exultation!
Jesus, most glorious, Kings’ stronghold!
Jesus, most beloved, Prophets’ fulfillment!
Jesus, most marvelous, martyr’s strength!
Jesus, most peaceful, monk’s joy!
Jesus, most gracious, priests’ sweetness!
Jesus, most merciful, fasters’ abstinence!
Jesus, most tender, saints’ rejoicing!
Jesus, most honorable, virgins’ chastity!
Jesus, everlasting, sinners’ salvation!
Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me!
