PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART

Merciful Jesus, I consecrate myself today and always to Your Most Sacred Heart.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I implore, that I may ever love You more and more.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.

Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like Yours.

Amen.



ENTRANCE: HOLY GOD, WE PRAISE THY NAME


1.

Holy God, we praise Thy name.

Lod of all, we bow before Thee.

All on earth Thy sceptre claim,

All in heaven above adore Thee.

Infinite Thy vast domain,

Everlasting is Thy reign.

Infinite Thy vast domain,

Everlasting is Thy reign.


2.

Hark the loudest celestial hymn,

Angel choirs above are raising.

Cherubim and Seraphim,

In unceasing chorus praising.

Fill the heaven with sweet accord,

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord.

Fill the heaven with sweet accord,

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord.


3.

Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit,

Three we name Thee.

While in essence only one,

Undivided God we claim Thee.

And adoring bend the knee,

While we own the mystery.

And adoring bend the knee,

While we own the mystery.



COMMUNION: HYMN FOR ST JEROME


1.

Jerome now laud with festive praise

A star for us of wondrous rays Outstanding by his teaching clear

And by his steadfast life severe.


2.

He strove by careful scholarship

Our dogmas and discipleship

To clarify and in dispute

A raging lion their foes refute.


3.

By sweat the scriptures verdant field

He farmed, and shared the fruitful yield His table ever offered place

To all who sought the food of grace.


4.

Desirous of the desert’s peace

He watched Christ’s cradle without cease

To crucify his flesh like Christ

An offering and sacrifice.


Lord may the prayers of St Jerome Conduct us to our final home Where we will join him in your praise With all the saints for endless days.



RECESSIONAL: GOD, WE PRAISE YOU


1.

God, we praise You!

God, we bless You!

God, we name You, sovereign Lord!

Mighty King whom angels worship,

Father by Your church adored.

All creation shows Your glory,

Heav’n and earth draw near Your throne,

Singing “Holy, holy, holy,

Lord of hosts and God alone!”


2.

True apostles, faithful prophets,

Saints who set their world ablaze.

Martyrs once unknown, unheeded,

Join one growing song of praise.

While Your church on earth confesses One,

Majestic Trinity, Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit,

God, our hope eternally.
