Hymn Tune Introit for the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Here is tomorrow's entrance antiphon in the Missal:

The designs of his heart are from age to age, to rescue their souls from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

This is a rhymed(-ish) version in Long Meter, which can be sung to a number of standard hymn tunes:

His heart's designs forever stand;
From age to age His loving plan,
That He may save their souls from death;
In famine save their life and breath.
