Traditional Air by Rev. A.J. Christe, S.J. This is the music swept away by the winds of VII Children like myself sang it in the 1940’s and 50’s … JFK and Jackie had a Sacred Heart song sung at their wedding. It was a typical First Friday song.
To Jesus’ Heart all burning With fervent love for men My heart with fondest yearning Shall raise its joyful strain
Refrain: While ages course along Blest be with loudest song, The Sacred Heart of Jesus by every heart and tongue.
O Heart for me on fire With love no tongue can speak My yet untold desire God gives me for Thy sake.
Too true, I have forsaken Thy love by willful sin; But now let me be taken Back by thy grace again
As thou art meek and lowly; And ever pure of Heart So let my heart be wholly Of Thine the counterpart
Oh! that to me were given The pinions of a dove, I’d speed aloft to heaven, My Jesus love to prove.
When life away is flying, And earth’s false glare is done Still, Sacred Heart in dying, I’ll say I’m all Thy own.
“The More you honor Me, the more I will Bless you”
