Heart of Jesus in which are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, have mercy on us ...
In ancient tales winged dragons guard their gold
and threaten with flame any who dare take hold.
Pirates in their cruel ships steal upon the sea,
and drown their victims without sympathy.
Kings hoard their treasures with wanton greed
and deny even the food their people need.
Jesus enthroned in heaven opens wide his embrace
and from his heart true treasure pours in endless grace.
