This is an English translation of the lyrics:

Come, O’ Bread of life
Be the Peace of my heart.
Come, O’ Divine Mercy
Overflow in my soul,
O’ Loving Jesus
As salt in the ocean,
In your eternal love, let me be dissolved.
Let me humbly offer to you
My body, Soul and everything.
Beyond the horizons
How vast is your love, O’ Lord
O defender of every moment of life
I will sing your glories in songs.
