Sacred Heart of Christ Our Saviour

Sacred Heart of Christ our Saviour,
Holy font of God’s great Love,
Let our hearts from Thee ne’er waver;
Be our refuge sure above!
Heart of Jesus! Heart of Jesus! Heart of Jesus!
Make us burn with Thy great love!
Make us burn with Thy great love!

Great High Priest of our profession
liftest up the faint and weak;
Be Thou e’er our sole possession,
Heart who for us intercedes!
Heart of Jesus! Heart of Jesus! Heart of Jesus!
Be Thou gracious to our pleas!
Be Thou gracious to our pleas!

Wounded Heart, O Blazing Furnace,
Vast Abyss of Charity,
Let Thy holy flame consume us!
Make us e’er more like to Thee!
Humble Jesus! Humble Jesus! Humble Jesus!
Hear us! Save us! Set us free!
Hear us! Save us! Set us free!

Heart despisèd, Heart afflicted,
Heart who knows our suffering,
Be now in all hearts uplifted:
Reign o’er all O glorious King!
Humble Jesus! Humble Jesus! Humble Jesus!
All the world Thy praise now sings!
All the world Thy praise now sings!

Rest of weary, Hope of sinners,
Heart of Christ the crucified,
Recreate us in Thine Image
That Thy Name be glorified!
Lord have mercy! Christ have mercy! Lord have mercy!
Let us be like Him who died!
Let us be like Him who died!

Christ our God, our Friend and Brother,
Love far deeper than the sea,
Let our hearts know not another,
Heart who for us ever bleeds!
Lord have mercy! Christ have mercy! Lord have mercy!
Bind us e’ermore unto Thee!
Bind us e’ermore unto Thee!

King of mercy, our Salvation,
Lord of Love, reign now alone!
Start in us Thy new creation:
Thy Heart our eternal home!
Come Lord Jesus! Come Lord Jesus!
Come Lord Jesus!
Set on earth Thy glorious Throne!
Set on earth Thy glorious Throne!
