Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
Chorus:
Jesus, in your heart we find
love of the Father and mankind;
these two loves to us impart
divine love in a human heart.

1  May we stand within the fire
Of your sacred heart and raise
To our God in joyful choir
All creation's song of praise.

2   In our hearts from roots of pride
Deadly growths of evil flower;
But from Jesus' wounded side
Streams the sacramental power.

3   To the depths within your heart
Draw us with divine desire,
Hide us, heal us, and impart
Your own love's transforming fire.

Chorus:
Jesus, in your heart we find
love of the Father and mankind;
these two loves to us impart
divine love in a human heart.

1  May we stand within the fire
Of your sacred heart and raise
To our God in joyful choir
All creation's song of praise.

2   In our hearts from roots of pride
Deadly growths of evil flower;
But from Jesus' wounded side
Streams the sacramental power.

3   To the depths within your heart
Draw us with divine desire,
Hide us, heal us, and impart
Your own love's transforming fire.
