Prayer to The Sacred Heart

Here is another beautiful prayer to The Sacred Heart of Jesus written by St. Gertrude the Great, who was a Benedictine nun and mystic (1256-1302).  In this we ask Jesus to conform our hearts and will to His Heart and Will.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart

Hail!   O Sacred Heart of Jesus, 
living and quickening source of eternal life, 
infinite treasure of the Divinity, 
and burning furnace of divine love. 
Thou art my refuge and my sanctuary, O my amiable Savior. 
Consume my heart with that burning fire with which Thine is ever inflamed. 
Pour down on my soul those graces which flow from Thy love, 
and let my heart be so united with Thine, that our wills may be one, 
and mine in all things, be conformed to Thine. 
May Thy divine will be equally the standard 
and rule of all my desires and of all my actions.
