THE SACRED HEART
O Heart of Jesus, Heart of God
Lady G. Fullerton
Nicola. A. Montani
O Heart of Jesus, Heart of God,
O source of boundless love;
By angels praised, by saints adored
From their bright throne above.
The poorest, saddest heart on earth,
May claim Thee for its own;
O burning, throbbing Heart of Christ,
Too late, too little known.
The hearts of men are often hard
And full of selfish care;
But in the Sacred Heart we find
A refuge from despair.
To Thee, my Jesus, then I come,
A poor and helpless child;
And on Thine own words |Come to Me,|
My only hope I build.
The world is cold, and life is sad,
I crave this blessed rest
Of those who lay their weary heads
Upon Thy sacred Breast.
For love is stronger far than death,
And who can love like Thee,
My Saviour, Whose appealing Heart
Broke on the Cross for me?
