Salutation And Offering To the Two Hearts
by Saint John Eudes

Salutation To the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
Hail, Hearts most holy,
Hail, Hearts most meek,
Hail, Hearts most humble,
Hail, Hearts most pure,
Hail, Hearts most devout,
Hail, Hearts most wise,
Hail, Hearts most patient,
Hail, Hearts most obedient,
Hail, Hearts most vigilent,
Hail, Hearts most faithful,
Hail, Hearts most blessed,
Hail, Hearts most merciful,
Hail, most loving Hearts of Jesus and Mary;
Thee we adore,
Thee we praise,
Thee we glorify,
To Thee do we give thanks;
Thee we love,
With all our heart,
With all our soul,
And with all our strength;
To Thee we offer our heart,
We give it,
We consecrate it,
We immolate it;
Accept and posses it entirely,
And purify it,
And illuminate it,
And sanctify it;
That in it Thou may live and reign
Both now and forever,
And in the ages of ages.

Offering To the Two Hearts
O Jesus, only Son of God, only Son of Mary,
I offer Thee the most loving Heart of Thy divine Mother which is more precious and pleasing to Thee than all hearts.
O Mary, Mother of Jesus, I offer Thee the most adorable Heart of Thy well-beloved Son, who is the life and love and joy of Thy Heart.
Blessed be the Most Loving Heart
and Sweet Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ
and the most gloriousVirgin Mary, His Mother,in eternity and forever.
Saint John Eudes, Apostle of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts
