LISTEN as a Musical Group of Siblings "Harpa Dei" Sings a Beautiful Ancient Hymn to the Sacred Heart of Jesus "Cor Arcam Legem"

The Harpa Dei Choir is made up of four siblings, both in blood and in spirit: Nikolai, Lucia, Marie-Elisée and Mirjana Gerstner. Born in Germany, they grew up in Ecuador, in South America. All four have as their spiritual foundation the long formation they have received in a religious community of Catholics. Since 2011, as part of a peace initiative, the siblings have been called to evangelization through Sacred Music. This is a hymn of St. Bonaventure (13th century) to the Sacred Heart of Jesus "Cor Arcam Legem". Lyrics found below the video. In this video they sing the "Cor Arcam Legem"
Lyrics: O Heart, Thou ark containing the Law, not of the old servitude, but of grace, and indulgence, and also of mercy. O Heart, Thou spotless sanctuary of the new covenant, Thou Temple, holier than the ancient one, And Veil, more profitable than that torn of old. Charity willed Thee to be wounded; by the spear thrust opened, that we might venerate the wounds of an invisible love. Under this symbol of love, having suffered bloody and mystical torments, Christ the Priest offered each in sacrifice. Who would not love in turn the One so loving him? Who, being thus redeemed, would not love, and choose eternal dwellings in this Heart? O Jesus, to Thee be glory, Who pourest grace from Thy heart, with the Father and the loving Spirit unto everlasting ages. Amen.
