Tu solus qui facis mirabilia,

Tu solus Creator, qui creasti nos,

Tu solus Redemptor, qui redemisti nos

sanguine tuo pretiosissimo.

 

Ad te solum confugimus,

in te solum confidimus

nec alium adoramus,

Jesus Christ.

 

Ad te preces effundimus

exaudi quod supplicamus,

et concede quod petimus,

Rex benign.

 

D'ung aultre amer,

Nobis esset fallacia:

D'ung aultre amer,

Magna esset stultitia et peccatum.

 

Audi nostra suspiria,

Replenos tua gratia,

O rex regum,

Ut ad tua servitia

Sistamus cum laetitia

in aeternum.

You alone can do wonders,
You alone are the Creator, and created us;
You alone are the Redeemer, and redeemed us
With your most precious blood.

In you alone we find refuge,
In you alone we trust,
None other do we worship,
Jesus Christ.

To you we pour out our prayers,
Hear our supplication,
and grant us our request,
O King of kindness!

To love another
would be deceitful;
To love another
would be great madness and sin.

Hear our sighing,
fill us with your grace,
O King of kings!
So we may remain in your service
With joy
for ever.

(Translation: Mick Swithinbank)
