Be merciful unto us, graciously hear us, O Lord,
From an unworthy reception of Thy Body and Blood deliver us O Lord
From the lust of the flesh,
From the lust of the eyes,
From the pride of life,
From every occasion of sin,
Through the desire, wherewith thou didst desire to eat this Passover with
Through that profound humility, wherewith Thou didst wash their feet,
Through that ardent charity, whereby Thou, didst institute this divine Sacrament,
Through Thy precious blood, which thou has left us on our altars.
Through the Five Wounds of this Thy most holy Body, which thou didst receive for us,
We sinners. We beseech Thee hear us.
That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to preserve and increase our faith, reverence, and devotion toward this admirable Sacrament; We beseech thee hear us.
That wouldst vouchsafe to conduct us, through a true confession of our sins, to a frequent reception of the holy Eucharist,
That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to deliver us from all heresy, perfidy, and blindness of heart.
That thou wouldst vouch safe to impart to us the precious and heavenly fruits of this most holy Sacrament,
That at the hour of death Thou wouldst strengthen and defend us by this heavenly Viaticum. (We beseech the hear us)
Son of God, (We beseech Thee hear us.)
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, spare us, O Lord,
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, hear us, O Lord,
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Christ, hear us.
Christ, graciously hear us.
V. Thou did give them bread from heaven (Alleluia).
R. Containing in itself all sweetness (Alleluia).
Let Us Pray
O God, who in this wonderful sacrament hast left us a memorial of Thy Passion; grant, we beseech Thee, that we may so worthily reverence the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Blood, that we may continually find in our souls the fruit of Thy redemption who lives and reigns, God forever and ever. Amen.
