TO JESUS HEART ALL BURNING (COR AMORIS)

To Jesus’ Heart, all burning
With fervent love for all,
My heart with fondest yearning
Shall raise its joyful call.
Refrain.
While ages course along,
Blest be with loudest song,
The sacred heart of Jesus
By ev’ry heart and tongue.
The sacred heart of Jesus
By ev’ry heart and tongue.
O heart, for me on fire
With love no-one can speak
My yet untold desire
God gives me for thy sake.
Too true, I have forsaken
Thy love for wilful sin;
Yet now let me be taken
Back by thy grace again.
As thou are meek and lowly,
And ever pure of heart,
So may my heart be wholly
Of thine the counterpart.
O 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.
