Reflections on the Litany of the Sacred Heart -15

Heart of Jesus, in which the Father is well pleased, have mercy on us ...

Pearl of greatest price,
perfection beyond compare,
haven of the homeless,
listener to our prayer.

Flawless source of truth,
healer of our pains,
shepherd of our souls,
king who ever reigns.

Praises sung forever
and yet scarce begun,
could not yet express
the beauty of the Son.
