|Work Title||Bonjour mon coeur|
|Alternative Title||Bon jour mon coeur; Christ est mon Dieu|

|First Publication||RISM 1564c|
|Librettist||Pierre de Ronsard (1524–1585)|
- From RISM possibly LV 167.
- "Christ est mon Dieu" is not a translation of the original text, it is the same melody set to a religious text of a different origin (not Ronsard). It is unclear whether this was done by Lassus or someone else, but it became a very popular tune in both forms, and there are several settings of both.
