Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ... For ever mercy to mankind From that exhaustless fountain flow. For this, thy sacred heart was pierced, And both with blood and water ran; To cleanse us from the stains of guilt. And be the hope and strength of man. To God the Father, and the Son, All praise, and power, and glory be; With Thee, O Spirit Paraclete, All through the long eternity. MATINS. En ut tuperba criminumt Lo! how the savage crew ()f our proud sins hath rent The Heart of our all-gracious God, That Heart so innocent! The soldier's quivering lance Our guilt it was that drave, Our wicked deeds that to its point Such cruel sharpness gave. O wounded Heart! whence sprang The Church, the Saviour's Bride; Thou Door of our Salvation's Ark Set in its mystic side! Thou holy Fount! whence flows The sacred sevenfold flood, Where we our filthy robes may cleanse In the Lamb's saving blood: By sorrowful relapse, Thee will we rend no moie; But like thy flames, those types of love, Strive Heavenward to soar. Father and Son supreme! And Spirit! hear our cry; Whose is the kingdom, praise and power, Through all eternity. LAUDS. Cor area legem continent. Auk of the Covenant! not that Whence bondage came of old; But that of pure forgiving grace And mercies manifold. Thou Veil of awful mystery! Thou Sanctuary sublime! Thou sacred Temple, holier far Than that of olden time! Blest Heart of Christ! in thy dear wound The hidden depth we see, Of what were else unguess'd by us, --His boundless charity. Beneath this emblem of pure love, 'Twas Love Himself that died, And offer'd up Himself for us, A Victim crucified. Oh, who of his redeem'd will Him Their mutual love refuse? Who would not rather in that heart. Their home eternal choose? to God the Father, with the Son, And, Holy Ghost, to Thee, Be honour, more
