Adoro te devote, latens Deitas, quae sub his figuris vere latitas: tibi se cor meum totum subjicit, quia te contemplans totum deficit.
Godhead here in hiding, whom I do adore,
Masked by these bare shadows, shape and nothing more,
See, Lord, at thy service low lies here a heart,
Lost, all lost in wonder at the God thou art.
Remember, 0 most loving Heart of Jesus, that they for whom I pray are those for whom You prayed so earnestly the night before Your death.These are they to whom You look to continue with You in Your sorrows when others forsake You, who share Your griefs and have inherited your persecutions, according to Your word: That the servant is not greater than his Lord.Remember, O Heart of Jesus, that they are the objects of the world's hatred and Satan's deadliest snares.Keep them then, 0 Jesus, in the safe citadel of Your Sacred Heart and there let them be sanctified in truth.May they be one with you and one among themselves, and grant that multitudes may be brought through their word to believe in You and love You.
