JESUS

16

I shall go back up to My Father
In order to draw up My elect.
After this earthly exile 
They will be received into My Heart.

17

When the last hour shall sound
I will gather together my flock.
And in their celestial dwelling
I will be their light.

THE ANGEL OF THE LAST JUDGMENT gets up.

(Melody: "Minuit, chrétiens" ["Midnight, Christians"])

Jesus, supreme beauty! have You then forgotten
That sinners must be punished at the end?...
Have You forgotten, in Your extreme love
That the number of the impious is countless?...
At the judgment, I shall punish crime.
I want to wipe out all the ungrateful....
My sword is ready!.... Jesus, sweet victim! ...
My sword is ready!!... I'll know how to avenge You!!!... (2x)

THE CHILD JESUS

18

O Beautiful angel! lay down your sword.
It is not for you to judge
The nature that I raise up
And have desired to redeem.

19

It is I, named Jesus,
Who will judge the world!
The fecund dew of My blood
Will purify all My elect.
 
20
 
Do you know that faithful souls 
Will console Me forever
For the blasphemies of the unfaithful
 By a simple look of love?...

21

Also, in the Holy Fatherland,
My elect will be glorified.
By giving them My life
I will make them like unto gods!...

THE ANGEL OF THE LAST JUDGMENT kneels

and sings to the tune of "Dieu de Paix et d'amour" ["God of Peace and Love"]

Before You, sweet Child, the cherubim bows down!...
Dazed, he admires Your ineffable love.
He wishes, like You, on the somber hill
To die one day!... (2x)
 
ALL THE ANGELS sing the refrain.
 
How great is the good fortune of the humble creature.
The seraphim in their ecstasy would wish
To leave, O Jesus! their angelic nature
And become children!... (2x)

THE END
