O' Gentlest Heart of Jesus
Ever present in the Blessed Sacrament,
ever consumed with burning love
for the poor captive souls in Purgatory,
have mercy on the soul of
Be not severe in Thy judgment,
but let some drops of Thy precious Blood
fall upon the devouring flames
and do Thou, O Merciful Savior,
send Thy angels to conduct
to place of refreshment, light and peace.
May the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
