Holy, Blessed Trinity,
Hear Our lowly litany;
Thou that takest sin away,
Lamb of GOD, to Thee we pray :
    Spare us in Thy dreadful day.

Thou Who didst not scorn the Womb,
Son of Mary, in the Doom,
In the storm and fiery flood,
By Thy Cross and Precious Blood,
    Turn not Thou Thy Face away.

By the rite of veiled grace,
Offering made in every place :
By Thy presence with the Bride,
Be the Rock where we may hide
    When the Sign in heaven appears.

Judge and Shepherd, safe to Fold,
Lead us when the Doom is told :
Place us, sinners, on the right,
Crown us, ransomed, with Thy Light,
    In that day of woe and tears. Amen.
