The Indian Advocate
THE SACRED HEART,
Heart, of "meek of heart" the meekest;
Ever gentlest to the weakest;
Heart, like our own hearts, so human;
Truly born of mortal woman.
Heart of God, the Uncreated!
Godhead's ardors unabated
Pulsing through these veins of thine;
Heart most Sacred, Heart divine!
Sweet Redeemer! Bethlehem's story,
Calvary's shame and Tabor's glory
One same mystery profound
In thy Sacred Heart is found.
Therefore, now, in glad rotation,
Tune we hymns of adoration;
Hymns of praise and jubilation;
Setting forth thy Incarnation.
Heart most tender, Heart most lowly,
Source of all things true and holy!
Heart of Godhead, three in one!
Heart of Jesus, Mary's Son!
Eliza Allen Harr.
