Prayer of St. Thérèse of Lisieux
To the Holy Face of Jesus

O Jesus, who in your bitter Passion became
"the most abject of men, a man of sorrows,”
I venerate your Sacred Face whereon there
once did shine the beauty and sweetness of
the Godhead; but now it has become for me
as if it were the face of a leper!

Nevertheless, under those disfigured features,
I recognize your infinite love and I am consumed
with the desire to love you and make you loved
by all men.

The tears which well up abundantly in your
sacred eyes appear to me as so many precious
pearls that I love to gather up, in order
to purchase the souls of poor sinners by means
of their infinite value.

O Jesus, whose adorable face ravishes my
heart, I implore you to fix deep within me your
divine image and to set me on fire with your
Love, that I may be found worthy to come
to the contemplation of your glorious Face
in Heaven. Amen.

St. Thérèse of Lisieux
Canticle to The Holy Face of Jesus

Dear Jesus! ‘tis Thy Holy Face
Is here the start that guides my way;
Thy countenance, so full of grace,
Is heaven on earth, for me, to-day.
And love finds holy charms for me
In Thy sweet eyes with tear-drops wet;
Through mine own tears I smile at Thee,
And in Thy griefs my pains forget.
How gladly would I live unknown,
Thus to console Thy aching heart.
Thy veiled beauty, it is shown
To those who live from earth apart.
I long to fly to Thee alone!
Thy Face is now my fatherland, —
The radiant sunshine of my days, —
My realm of love, my sunlit land,
Where, all life long, I sing Thy praise;
It is the lily of the vale,
Whose mystic perfume, freely given,
Brings comfort, when I faint and fail,
And makes me taste the peace of heaven.
Thy Face, in its unearthly grace,
Is like the divinest myrrh to me,
That on my heart I gladly place;
It is my lyre of melody;
My rest — my comfort — is Thy Face.
My only wealth, Lord! is Thy Face;
I ask naught else than this from Thee;
Hid in the secret of that Face,
The more I shall resemble Thee!
Oh, leave on me some impress faint
Of Thy sweet, humble, patient Face,
And soon I shall become a saint,
And draw men to Thy saving grace.
So, in the secret of Thy Face,
Oh! hide me, hide me, Jesus blest!
There let me find its hidden grace,
Its holy fires, and, in heaven’s rest,
Its rapturous kiss, in Thy embrace!
