THE SACRED HEART
Sacred Heart of Jesus, fount of love
From a Slovak Hymnal
Arr. by N. A .M.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, fount of love and mercy,
Today we come Thy blessing to implore;
Oh, touch our hearts, so cold and so ungrateful,
And make them, Lord, Thine own forever more.
Sacred Heart of Jesus! We implore,
Oh, makes us love Thee more and more.
Sacred Heart of Jesus! Make us know and love Thee,
Unfold to us the treasures of Thy grace,
That so our hearts, from things of earth up lifted, May long alone to gaze upon Thy Face.
Sacred Heart of Jesus! Make us pure and gentle,
And teach us how to do Thy blessed will;
To follow close the print of Thy dear footsteps,
And when we fall Sacred Heart, oh, love us still.
Sacred Heart of Jesus! Bless all hearts that love Thee, And Thine own Heart ever blessed be;
Bless us, dear Lord, and bless the friends we cherish, And keep us true to Mary and to Thee.
