Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
O most holy Heart of Jesus,
fountain of every blessing,
I adore You, I love You,
and with a lively sorrow for my sins,
I offer You this poor heart of mine.
Make me humble, patient, pure
and wholly obedient to Your will.
Grant, good Jesus,
that I may live in You, and for You.
Protect me in the midst of danger;
comfort me in my afflictions;
give me health of body.
assistance in my temporal needs,
Your blessing on all that I do,
and the grace of a holy death.
Let us pray:
Almighty and everlasting God,
look upon the Heart of Your well-beloved Son
and upon the praise and satisfaction
which He offers you in the name of sinners;
and as they seek Your mercy,
be pleased to grant them forgiveness
in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with You forever and ever.
