Recordare, Iesu pie,
Quod sum causa tuæ viæ:
Ne me perdas illa die.
Think – kind Jesu ! – my salvation
Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation;
Leave me not to reprobation.
In this verse the pray-er seeks Jesus’ recognition that it was the need for our salvation which caused Him to be born in the first place; and it implies that His recognition of that would surely not lead to us suffering ultimate reprobation.
