I adore, praise, and salute you, O most sweet Heart of Jesus Christ. I thank you for having preserved me during this night, and for having rendered to God the Father praises and thanksgivings on my behalf. And now I offer you my heart as a morning sacrifice; I place it in your most tender Heart and entrust it to your keeping; deign to pour into it your divine inspiration, and to enkindle it with your holy love. Amen.
(St Gertrude, d. 1302)
