On My Heart Imprint Thine Image

Representative Text

On my heart imprint your image,
blessed Jesus, King of grace,
that life's riches, cares, and pleasures
have no pow'r to hide your face.
Let the clear inscription be:
Jesus, crucified for me,
is my life, my hope's foundation,
and my glory and salvation.
