Representative Text

1 O Sacred Heart! with burning love,
On Thee encaptured Angels gaze;
To Thee triumphant saints above
Forever sing their grateful praise.

O Sacred Heart! may we adore,
And love Thee ever more and more.

2 Thou, Heart of Jesus! art the throne
Of mercy--Thou the fount of grace;
Our hope of Heav'n from Thee alone,
Sole refuge of our fallen race. [Chorus]

3 O Lamb of God! meek victim, slain
For us, let not the stream that flowed
From Thy pierced Heart have flowed in vain.
Oh! cleanse us with Thy precious blood. [Chorus]

4 God's Mother! Virgin ever blest!
Thy heart and His are always one;
Plead thou our cause; thy sweet request
Is never slighted by thy Son. [Chorus]
