The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the French Revolution

Lyrics for the opening hymn "O Sacred Heart' by F. Stanfield (1835-1914) was written for the conversion of England:

"O Sacred Heart, Our home lies deep in thee. On earth thou art the exile's rest, In heaven the glory of the blest, O Sacred Heart. O Sacred Heart, Thou fount of contrite tears; Where'er those living waters flow, New life to sinners they bestow, O Sacred Heart. O Sacred heart, Bless our dear native land; May England's sons in truth e'er stand, With faith's bright banner still in hand, O Sacred Heart. O Sacred Heart, Our trust is all in thee; For though earth's night be dark and drear, Thou breathest rest where thou art near, O Sacred Heart. O Sacred Heart, When shades of death shall fall, Receive us 'neath thy gentle care, And save us from the tempter's snare, O Sacred Heart. O Sacred Heart, Lead exiled children home, Where we may ever rest near thee, In peace and joy eternally, O SACRED HEART!"
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
