Recommendation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O sweetest Heart of Jesus,
to Thee I commend my body
and my soul this night,
that they may calmly rest in Thee.
And as I cannot praise my God
while I sleep,
do Thou deign
to supply my lack of service,
and for every beating of my heart
give praise to the most Holy Trinity
on my behalf;
receive into Thyself
every breath I draw,
and offer them all to God
as glowing sparks of Divine love.

~ St. Gertrude the Great
