1.  O Jesu sweet, O Jesu mild,

Thy Father’s will hast thou fulfilled.

For thou hast left thy heavenly throne

Our lowly state to make thine own,

O Jesu sweet, O Jesu mild.

2.  O Jesu sweet, O Jesu mild,

Help us to do as thou hast willed.

Whate’er we have belongs to thee:

O may we ever faithful be,

O Jesu sweet, O Jesu mild.
