Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
Christ, hear us
Christ, graciously hear us
God the Father in heaven, have mercy on us
God the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us
God, the Holy Ghost, have mercy on us
Holy Trinity, one God, have mercy on us
Blood of Christ, the only-begotten Son of the eternal Father,
save us
Blood of Christ, the Word of God made flesh, *
Blood of Christ, of the New and Eternal Covenant, *
Blood of Christ, which in His agony ran down upon the ground, *
Blood of Christ, which welled up under the scourging,
Blood of Christ, which flowed from beneath the crown of thorns,
Blood of Christ, which was poured out upon the cross,
Blood of Christ, which paid for our salvation,
Blood of Christ, without which there is no forgiveness of sin,
Blood of Christ, which in the Eucharist nourishes and cleanses our souls,
Blood of Christ, torrent of mercy,
Blood of Christ, which overcame the powers of darkness,
Blood of Christ, giving strength to martyrs,
Blood of Christ, giving endurance to confessors,
Blood of Christ, from which virginity flowers,
Blood of Christ, giving courage to those in danger,
Blood of Christ, giving help to those who are burdened,
Blood of Christ, giving comfort to those in sorrow,
Blood of Christ, giving hope to the repentant,
Blood of Christ, through which the dying are consoled,
Blood of Christ, through which our hearts find peace and refreshment,
Blood of Christ, through which we are assured of everlasting life,
Blood of Christ, by which the gates of Purgatory are opened wide,
Blood of Christ, worthy of all praise and glory,

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

V. Thou hast ransomed us with Thy Blood, O Lord.
R. And made of us a kingdom for our God.

Let Us Pray: Almighty and everlasting God, Thou hast appointed Thine only-begotten Son to be the Redeemer of the world, and chosen to accept the offering of His Blood; therefore, we beg Thee, teach us to reverence that which paid for our salvation, and defend us by Its power from the evils of this earthly life, so that we may rejoice forever in the life that It has bought for us in heaven. Through the same Christ our Lord.

R. Amen
