Hymn for the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
"All who do not wish to perish in that deluge of iniquity which inundates the earth, 
should seek in the Heart of Jesus an asylum and a shelter."--St. Bernard.

Isa. xii. 3: "You shall draw waters with joy out of the Saviour's fountain."


Jesu, Creator of the world!
Of all mankind Redeemer blest!
True God of God! in whom we see
The Father's Image clear expressed!

O Jesu! in Thy heart divine
May that same love for ever flow;
For ever mercy to mankind
From that exhaustless fountain flow.

Thee, Saviour, love alone constrained
To make our mortal flesh Thine own;
And as a second Adam come,
For the first Adam to atone.

For this, Thy sacred heart was pierced,
And both with blood and water ran,
To cleanse us from the stains of guilt,
And be the hope and strength of man.

That self-same love, which made the sky
Which made the sea, and stars, and earth,
Took pity on our misery,
And broke the bondage of our birth.

To God the Father and the Son
All praise, and power, and glory be;
With Thee, O holy Comforter,
Henceforth through all eternity. Amen


First Vespers.

V. I came to send fire on earth.
R. And what will I but that it be kindled?


Second Vespers.

V. With joy ye shall draw water.
R. From the fountains of the Saviour.




The Sacred Heart of Jesus, The Object of Our Love in the Blessed Sacrament

"Let us return love for love."

Ps. lxxxv. 12: "I will praise Thee, O Lord, my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify Thy name for ever."


Beneath the outward form of bread
There is a Sacred Heart,
The tenderest Heart that ever bled,
Or felt unkindness' smart.

Chorus: 'Tis ours, blest sacrament, to atone
For wrongs in Thee to Jesus done.



Here then He dwells, and here invites
The gentle and the rude
To make returns of love--but meets
Nought but ingratitude.

Chorus: 'Tis ours, blest sacrament, to atone
For wrongs in Thee to Jesus done.



The Word of God in flesh had clad
Himself in Mary's womb,
The Heart of Jesus now has made
The sacrament its home.

Chorus: 'Tis ours, blest sacrament, to atone
For wrongs in Thee to Jesus done.



Then, brethren of the Sacred Heart,
Be this our single aim,
In Jesus' griefs to have a part,
And sympathise with Him.

Chorus: 'Tis ours, blest sacrament, to atone
For wrongs in Thee to Jesus done.





The Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Hope of Sinners

Ps. xxxiii. 8: "Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.

All ye who seek a sure relief
In trouble or distress,
Whatever sorrows vex the mind,
Or guilt the soul oppress;
Our Lord, Who gave Himself for us
Upon the Cross to die,
Unfolds to us His Sacred Heart;
Oh, to that Heart draw nigh.

Chorus: O Jesu, joy of Saints on high;
Thou hope of sinners here,
Attracted by those loving words,
To Thee I lift my prayer.



What meeker than the Saviour's heart
As on the Cross He lay?
It did His murderers forgive,
And for their pardon pray.
Ye hear how kindly He invites,
Ye hear His words so blest:
"All ye that labour come to Me,
And I will give you rest."

Chorus: O Jesu, joy of Saints on high;
Thou hope of sinners here,
Attracted by those loving words,
To Thee I lift my prayer.



Wash Thou my wounds in that dear blood
Which forth from Thee did flow:
New grace, new hope inspire, a new
And better life bestow.
Praise Him who with the Father sits
Enthroned upon the skies;
Whose blood redeems our souls from guilt,
Whose Spirit sanctifies.

Chorus: O Jesu, joy of Saints on high;
Thou hope of sinners here,
Attracted by those loving words,
To Thee I lift my prayer.
"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
