Inspiration for hymn: St. Margaret Mary Alacoque's Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

-- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Only You (Consecration)
Inspired by The Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
By St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

I consecrate my person and my life,
My actions, my sufferings, and every strife,
That all my being may be set apart for You.
Only You. (Holy Holy)

I take Thee as the object of my love,
Your pledge of my salvation lifts me from above,
And all my days I will live my life for You.
Only You. (Holy Holy)

Engrave my name upon Your Heart
Let me never be apart from Your Love.
Your timeless love.

I place all my confidence in thee
I am weak but I long to be
Free from sin that keeps me far apart from You.
Only You. (Holy Holy)

I offer now to You my every breath.
All I ask of You is at the hour of my death
O my Love to have lived and died for you.
Only You. (Holy Holy)
