[Latin Text]

[P] World without end.
[C] Amen.
[P] The Lord be with you
[C] And with thy spirit.
[P] Lift up your hearts.
[C] We have lifted them up to the Lord.
[P] Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
[C] It is meet and just.

It is truly meet and just, right and availing unto salvation, that we should in all times and in all places give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty and everlasting God. That on the ______ of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we should praise and proclaim Thee. For she conceived Thine only begotten Son by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost; and losing not the glory of her virginity, gave forth to the world the everlasting light, Jesus Christ Our Lord. Through whom the angels praise Thy majesty, the dominations adore, the powers are in awe, the virtues of highest heaven and the blessed seraphim unite in blissful exultation. With them we praise Thee; grant that our voices too may blend, saying in adoring praise:

[All] Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are filled with Thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed  + is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
