PER intercessionem beati Michaelis archangeli stantis a dextris Altaris Incensi, et omnium electorum suorum, incensum istud dignetur Dominus benedicere, et in odorem suavitatis accipere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

ACCEPT us, O Lord, in the spirit of humility, and contrition of heart; and grant that the sacrifice we offer this day in thy sight, may be pleasing to thee, O Lord God.

Here, at High Mass, he blesses the Incense, saying:

INCENSUM istud a te benedictum, ascendat ad

COME, O almighty and eternal God, the sanctifier, and bless this sacrifice, prepared for the glory of thy holy name.

te Domine, et descendat Lord, ascend to thee,
super nos misericordia and may thy mercy de-
scend upon us.

At incensing the Altar, he says:
oratio mea sicut incen-
sum, in conspectu tuo;
elevatio manuum mea-
rum sacrificium vesper-
tinum. Pone, Domine,
custodiam ori meo, et
ostium circumstantiæ
labiis meis, ut non de-
clinet cor meum in verba
malitiæ, ad excusandas
excusationes in peccatis.

On giving the Censer to the Deacon, he says: MAY the Lord enkindle within us the fire of his love, and the flame of everlasting charity. Amen.

LAVABO inter innocentes manus meas; et circumdabo altare tuum, Domine.

LET my prayer, O Lord, be directed as incense in thy sight; and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice. Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth, and a door round about my lips, that my heart incline not to evil words, to make excuses in sin.

Utaudiam vocem laudis; et enarrem universa mirabilia tua.

Domine, dilexi decorem domûs tuæ, et locum habitationis gloriæ


I WILL wash my hands among the innocent; and will compass thy altar, O Lord.

That I may hear the voice of thy praise, and tell all thy wondrous works.

I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house, and the place where thy glory dwelleth.

Ne perdas cum impiis animam meam, et cum viris sanguinum vitam


In quorum manibus iniquitates sunt; dextera eorum repleta est muneribus.

Ego autem in innocentiâ meâ ingressus sum; redime me, et miserere mei.

Pes meus stetit in directo; in ecclesiis benedicam te Domine.

Gloria Patri, et Filio, &c.

Take not away my soul with the wicked, nor my life with bloody


In whose hands are iniquities; their right hand is filled with gifts.

But I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on


My foot hath stood in the direct way; in the churches I will bless thee, O Lord. Glory be to the Father,

P. Gratias agamus Domino Deo nostro. R. Dignum et justum


THE VERE dignum et justum est, æquum et salu tare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere, Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, æterne Deus. Per Christum Dominum nostrum ; per quem majestatem tuam laudant angeli, adorant dominationes, tremunt potestates; cœli colorumque virtutes, ac beata seraphim, sociâ exultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces, ut admitti jubeas deprecamur supplici confessione dicentes :


P. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. R. It is meet and just.

Sanctus, sanctus,sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt cœli et terra gloriâ tuâ. Hosanna in excelsis. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis.

IT is truly meet and just, right and available to salvation, that we should always, and in all places, give thanks to thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God. Through Christ our Lord; by whom the angels praise thy majesty, the dominations adore it, the powers tremble before it; the heavens, the heavenly virtues, and blessed seraphim, with common jubilee glorify it. Together with whom we beseech thee that we may be admitted to join our humble voices, saying:

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
