Adoration Prayers

O Salutaris Hostia  

O Salutaris Hostia                       

Quae coeli pandis ostium        

Bella premunt hostilia               

Da robur fer auxilium                

Uni trinoque Domino                 

Sit sempi terna gloria                  

Qui vitam sine termino               

Nobis donet in patria.                  


O Saving Victim, opening wide,

The gate of heaven to man below!

Our foes press on from every side;

 Thine aid supply, thy strength bestows.

To Thy great name by endless praise,

Immortal Godhead, one in Three; 

Oh, grant us endless length of days, 

In our true native land with Thee.



I adore You, O Jesus, true God and true man, here present in the Holy Eucharist, as I humbly kneel before You and unite myself in spirit with all the faithful on earth and all the Saints in Heaven. In heartfelt gratitude for so great a blessing, I love You, my Jesus, with my whole soul, for You are infinitely perfect and all worthy of my love. Give me the grace never more in any way to offend You. Grant that I may be renewed by Your Eucharistic presence here on earth and be found worthy to arrive with Mary at the enjoyment of Your eternal and blessed presence in heaven. Amen.


Tantum ergo Sacramentum 

Veneremur cernui 

Et antiquum documentum 

Novo cedat ritui 

Praestet fides supplementum 

Sensuum defectui 

Genitori, Genitoque 

Laus et jubilatio 

Salus, honor, virtus quoque 

Sit et benedictio 

Procedenti ab utroque 

Compar sit laudatio. 


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 Spirit proceeding

Forth from each eternally, 

Be salvation, honor blessing, 

Might and endless majesty. 


Panem de caelo praestitisti eis. You have given them bread from heaven.

Omne delectamentum in se habentem. Containing in itself all sweetness.


Deus, qui nobis sub Sacramento mirabili

Passionis tuae memoriam reliquisti; tribue,

quaesumus, ita nos Corporis et Sanguinis tui

sacra mysteria venerari, ut redemptionis tuae

fructum in nobis iugiter sentiamus: Qui vivis

et regnas in saecula saeculorum.


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. 



Blessed be God.

Blessed be his holy name.

Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.

Blessed be the name of Jesus.

Blessed be his most Sacred Heart.

Blessed be his most precious blood.

Blessed be Jesus in the most holy sacrament of the altar.

Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.

Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.

Blessed be her holy and immaculate conception.

Blessed be her glorious assumption.

Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.

Blessed be Saint Joseph, her most chaste spouse.

Blessed be God in his angels and in his saints.


Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae 

Vita dulce do et spes nostra, salve 

Ad te clamamus, exsules, filii Hevae.

Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac la crimarum valle. 

Eia ergo, Advocata nostra,

Illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. 

Et Jesum benedictum fructum ventris tui, 

Nobis post hoc exsilium ostende. 

O Clemens, O pia, O dulcis, Virgo Maria

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, Mary, mother and queen of tender mercy, Our life, our comfort, and our hope, we hail you. 

From this foreign land Eve’s sons and daughters cry to you. 

So lost, so full of fear, we mourn, we grieve, we sigh from this tearful vale of exile. 

Ah, then, our help our advocate and guide, turn now to us the gaze of your all-loving eyes, so full of mercy. 

And Jesus your Son, and Lord, your womb’s most blessed fruit show him to us when we complete our sojourn. O gentle, O loving, O beloved, O sweet Virgin Mary

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.


Holy God, we praise Thy Name;

Lord of all, we bow before Thee!

All on earth Thy scepter claim,

All in heaven above adore Thee;

Infinite Thy vast domain,

Everlasting is Thy reign.

Holy Father, Holy Son,

Holy Spirit, Three we name Thee;

While in essence only One,

Undivided God we claim Thee;

And adoring bend the knee,

While we own the mystery.
