Heart of Jesus, Hear (Prayer to the Sacred Heart) Words by Ali Figueroa Music by Barok Gutierrez Arrangement by Palan Reyes Featuring Sr Bubbles Bandojo, rc The lyrics of the song draw inspiration from the traditional and devotional prayers: to the Most Sacred Heart "Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like unto Yours." and to the Divine Mercy, "Jesus, I Trust in You." It also draws its inspiration from traditional songs to the Heart of Christ in the local Church of the Philippines. The first two lines of the refrain "Listen to our prayer! Heart of Jesus, hear! Make us always yours, and hold us ever near" is inspired by the refrain of "O Sacred Heart, O Love Divine": Heart of Jesus, hear, O Heart of Love Divine. Listen to our prayer. Make us always Thine. The text in verse one: Keep us by your side is from the traditional Anima Christi, attributed to Pope John XXII. This song is appropriate as a Communion Song, especially on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart celebrated on the Friday after the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of the Lord, and on Friday devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as an alternative English song to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I Teach our hearts to love like yours, love of God most high! Sacred Heart of Jesus, keep us by your side! II Save us all from death and sin, our King crucified. Crowned with thorns and sorrow, you give us new life. REFRAIN Listen to our prayer! Heart of Jesus, hear! Make us always yours, and hold us ever near ...
