Sacred Heart of Jesus make me
Love Thee more and more
More than father, more than mother
More than sister, more than brother
And when life is o’er
Sacred Heart! do not forsake me
But in pity take me, take me
In through mercy’s door.
Thou hast shown me God like patience
Which should melt whin-stone,
Ne’er a murmur as they stipped Thee
Ne’er a murmur as they whipped Thee
Tearing flesh from bone.
Ne’er a moan, nor lamentation
What a price for man’s salvation;
See when sin has done.
Sacred Heart of Jesus! bind me
To Thy Holy Cross.
Sacred Heart of Jesus! bend me,
Strip me, whip me, card me, rend me,
Sift out sinful dross.
In the mill of duty grind me
With the band of true love bind me
To Thee and the Cross.
