Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us. Christ hear us.
Christ, graciously hear us.

God the Father of heaven,
Have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world,
Have mercy on us.
God the Holy Spirit,
Have mercy on us.

Holy Trinity, one God,
Have mercy on us.

Holy Mary,
Pray for us. (repeat after each line)
Holy Mother of God,
Holy Virgin of virgins,
Holy Father St. Dominic,
Light of the Church,
Day star of the world,
Preacher of grace,
Rose of patience,
Most zealous for the salvation of souls,
Most desirous of martyrdom,
Evangelical man,
Ivory of chastity,
Man of an apostolic heart,
Doctor of truth,
Example of poverty,
Rich in purity of life,
Burning as a torch for the salvation of sinners,
Trumpet of the Gospel,
Herald of heavenly tidings,
Rule of abstinence,
Shining as the sun in the temple of God,
Enriched with the grace of Christ,
Clothed in heavenly robes,
Resplendent in the choir of virgins,
Father and leader of our Holy Order,
That at the hour of death we may be received into the heavenly kingdom,

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,
Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us.

Pray for us, O holy father, St. Dominic,
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray, Grant, we beseech you, omnipotent Lord, that we borne down by the weight of our sins, may by the intercession of our Holy Father, St. Dominic, be mercifully assisted. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
