|16||Jesus' Heart All Burning|
|(COR AMORIS )|
|Rev. A. J. Christe, S. J.||Traditional Air|
To Jesus' Heart all burning With fervent love for men,
My heart, with fondest yearning, Shall raise its joyful strain.
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;
Yet now let me be taken Back by thy grace again.
As thou art meek and lowly, And ever pure of Heart,
So may 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 thine own.
