|O Sacred Heart of Jesus Dear||13|
|Act of Consecration|
|I. Williams||Old Melody|
1.O Sacred Heart! O Heart of Jesus dear!
O Sacred Heart aflame with love divine;
Take thou my heart, draw me each day more near;
Take thou my heart, Take thou my heart,
Take thou my heart and let it rest in thine.
2.Pierced by the lance on Calvary's cruel Tree,
A Saving Flood of priceless graces poured,
From his dear Heart, whose Blood was shed for me;
The Sacred Heart, The Sacred Heart,
The Sacred Heart, the loving Heart of God.
3.O Sacred Heart, true source of heavenly bliss,
Of peace divine which thou alone canst give;
What sweeter lot could mortal ask than this
To die for thee, To die for thee,
To die for thee with thee in heaven to be?
