Use: General hymn for Mass, processions, or private prayer.
Jesu, Dulcis Memoria expresses hope in our eternal union with our Lord and Savior, and accomplishes this in the most endearing terms. The song extols Jesus as our future prize (futurus praemium), recognizing that our lot here on earth is to see as "through a glass darkly" (1 Cor. 13:12). Our hope is to know even as we are known, while our task at hand is to take up our cross and follow Him. Quam bonus te quaerentibus, sed quid invenientibus?
