  • Canticle to the Holy Face by St. Therese of Lisieux

     Holy-Face-of-Jesus-23Jesus! Thy dear and holy Face
    Is the bright star that guides my way;
    Thy gentle glance, so full of grace,
    Is my true heaven on earth, today.
    My love finds out the holy charm
    Of Thy dear eyes with tear-drops wet;
    Through mine own tears I smile at Thee,
    And in Thy griefs my pains forget.
