Representative Text

1 To Jesus' Heart all burning
With fervent love for man,
My heart, with fondest yearning,
Shall raise the joyful strain.

Chorus:
While ages course along,
Blest be, with loudest song,
The Sacred Heart of Jesus,
By ev'ry heart and tongue,
The Sacred Heart of Jesus,
by ev'ry heart and tongue.

2 O Heart for me on fire
With love no man can speak,
My yet untold desire
God gives me for Thy sake. [Chorus]

3 Too true! I have forsak'n
Thy flock, by willful sin,
Yet now let me be tak'n
Back to Thy fold again. [Chorus]

4 As Thou art meek and lowly,
And ever pure of heart,
So may my heart be wholly
Of Thine the counterpart. [Chorus]

5 When life away is flying
And earth's false glare is done,
Still, sacred Heart! in dying
I'll say I'm all Thine own. [Chorus]
