Hymn "Heart of Jesus"
Question from Constance Bolander on 9/29/2004:

My Dad taught his four daughters this song when we were small and I'm wondering where it originated. He was in the Knights of Columbus but also involved with Barbershop singing.

Do you recognize this hymn?

The lyrics I remember are:

Heart of Jesus, meek and mild, Hear, oh hear, thy feeble child. When the tempest roars so near, Heart of Jesus hear.

Sweetly we rest on thy Sacred Heart. Never, oh never, oh let us part. Hear then thy loving children’s prayer, Heart of Jesus, Heart of Jesus hear.

Anyway, I found the following regarding the song in question:

Text: from Sisters of Notre Dame Music: from Sunday School Hymn Book, S.N.D. 1907
