Lyrics

Heart of Christ we sing your praises,
Wellspring of eternal life.
Through the sorrows of our passion
We find refuge from our strife.

Heart of Christ now embodied,
All the wonder of God’s love
You tell us the tender mercies,
Showered from our God above.

Heart of Christ who brings all healing,
To the lowly and the weak.
Let us know your loving kindness,
Show yourself to all who seek.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY Heart of Christ we sing your praises,
Wellspring of eternal life.
Through the sorrows of our passion
We find refuge from our strife.

Heart of Christ now embodied,
All the wonder of God’s love
You tell us the tender mercies,
Showered from our God above.

Heart of Christ who brings all healing,
To the lowly and the weak.
Let us know your loving kindness,
Show yourself to all who seek.
