Holy Hour- St. John the Evangelist Parish

O SALUTARIS

O Salutaris Hostia,
Quae caeli pandis ostium: 
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.

Uni trinoque Domino 
Sit sempiterna gloria,
Qui vitam sine termino 
Nobis donet in patria.
Amen.

(translation)

O saving Victim, open wide,
The gate of heaven to man below!
Our foes press on from every side;
Your aid supply, thy strength bestow.

To Your great name by endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, one in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land to be. Amen

SILENT PRAYER

BENEDICTION

TANTUM ERGO

Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Præstet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et Jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.
Amen.

(translation)

Down in adoration falling,
Lo! the sacred Host we hail;
Lo! o'er ancient forms departing,
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.

To the everlasting Father,
And the Son who reigns on high,
With the Holy Ghost proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honor, blessing,
Might and endless majesty. Amen.

You have given them bread from heaven, (Alleluia)
R. Having all sweetness within it.

Let us pray.

Lord Jesus Christ, you gave us the Eucharist as the memorial of your suffering and death. May our worship of this sacrament of your body and blood, help us to experience the salvation won for us and the peace of the kingdom, where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Infinite thy vast domain,

Hark, the loud celestial hymn,
angel choirs above are raising.

fill the heav’ns with sweet accord:
Holy, holy, holy Lord.
