lyrics

Text & English Translation

O quam bonum, O quam iocundum, quam suave, quam delectabile habitare in corde tuo, O bone Iesu.

Venite, omnes animæ sanctæ, intrate per regiam portam, intrate per latus Salvatoris, ad gaudia cœlestia. Venite, intrate, venite ad consolationem angelorum, venite, intrate, et videte quam benignus sit Dominus diligentibus se. O fideles, O populi Dei, ingredemini cum lætitia, quia hæc porta Domini; iusti tantum intrabunt in eam, et ibi pascua læta inveniunt. Ibi gustabunt dulcedinis Paradisi.

O quam bonum, O quam iocundum, quam suave, quam delectabile habitare in corde tuo, O bone Iesu.

Aspice, respice, Domine, populum iustum; fac illum intrare in corde tuo. Dicat semper populus iste tuus: Hic habitabimus, quoniam elegimus illum. Alleluia.

O how good, O how joyous, how sweet, how delightful it is to live in Your heart, O good Jesus.

Come, all you holy souls, enter by the royal gate, enter through the Savior’s side, to heavenly joys. Come, enter; come to the angels’ consolation, come, enter, and see how good the Lord is to those who seek Him. O you faithful, O people of God, enter with joy, for this gate is the Lord’s, and only the just will enter it; there they will find joyous pasture, there they will taste of Paradise’s sweetness.

O how good, O how joyous, how sweet, how delightful it is to live in Your heart, O good Jesus.

Lord, look upon this people; make them enter Your heart; let this Your people always say: “Here we shall dwell, for we have chosen Him.” Alleluia.
