O my God,
the true and only love of my soul,
what more couldst Thou do to induce me to love Thee!
Thou wast not content with dying for me;
Thou didst wish to institute this holy Sacrament,
to give Thyself entirely to me,
and thus unite Thy whole Heart
to the heart of a creature
so vile and ungrateful as I am.
And what is more,
Thou Thyself dost invite me to receive Thee;
Thou dost ardently desire that I should receive Thee.
O infinite love!
incromprehensible love!
a God wishes to give Himself to me!

My soul, dost thou believe all this?
What are thou doing,
or what hast thou to say?
O God,
infinitely amiable,
the only object worthy of all love,
I love Thee with my whole heart;
I love Thee above all things;
I love Thee more than myself -
more than my life!
Oh, that I could see Thee loved by all!
Oh, that I could make all hearts love Thee,
at much as Thou dost desire!
I love Thee,
O most amiable God;
and in loving Thee,
I unite my miserable heart to the heart of Seraphim,
to the heart of most holy Mary,
and to the Heart of Jesus Thy most holy Son.
Thus I love Thee,
O infinite Goodness,
with the love with which the Saints,
with which Jesus and Mary love Thee.
