Hail Heart Most Holy


Lyrics: From a Prayer Composed by St. John Eudes in 1648
Melody: Morning Has Broken (Old Gaelic Melody)

Hail heart most holy
Hail heart most gentle
Patient and humble
Faithful and pure
Hail heart most blessed
Wise and obedient,
Merciful, loving
Refuge secure.

Hail heart of Jesus
One heart with Mary,
Praise, thanks and glory
Ever are due.
Praise you, we love you
Heart, soul and spirit,
As we our own hearts
Offer to you.

This consecration,
Heart’s immolation
Take and possess now,
To us impart
Wisdom and knowledge,
Strength for our journey.
That you may always
Reign in our heart.
