June: the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Let us dedicate the month of June to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


Close veiled in that sweet Sacrament, Our Jesus' Heart, 
our treasure lies; 
Love's priceless, dearest testament
Is shrouded in that mystic guise. 

Our Jesus left His realm of light, 
On wings of love to earth He's flown; 
To dwell with us is His delight, 
He makes our hearts His earthly throne.

O Sacred Heart, how sweet 'twould be, 
If we could die for love of Thee! 
O Sacred Heart, how sweet 'twould be, 
If we could die for love of Thee! 

Love is not loved! O Angels, weep; 
Ye virgins chaste, breathe bitter sighs; 
O earth, be clothed in mourning deep; 
Withdraw your light, ye radiant skies:

For all, our souls' dear Spouse hath died, 
For all, His Heart with love doth burn; 
Yet this meek Saviour men deride, 
And for His love make no return.

O Sacred Heart, how sweet 'twould be, 
If we could die for love of Thee! 
O Sacred Heart, how sweet 'twould be, 
If we could die for love of Thee!
