Prayer to the Sacred Heart

Prayer to the Sacred Heart
by St. Therese of Lisieux

O Heart of Jesus, treasure of
tenderness, You Yourself are
my happiness, my only hope.

You who knew how to charm
my tender youth,
Stay with me till the last light.

Lord, to You alone I’ve given my life,
and all my desires are well known to You.

It’s in your infinite goodness that I want
to lose myself, O Heart of Jesus.
