Suscipe clementissime Deus
Oblationem istam
Quam tibi offerimus hodie
In spiritu humilitatis
In honorem Sancti Joannis Baptistae
Veni et benedic hoc sacrificium
Immensae maiestati tuae praeparatum
Quam laudant angeli et archangeli
Qui non cessant clamare quotidie:
Tu solus sanctus, tu solus Dominus
Altissimus Jesu Christe.

English.png English translation

Hear, O most merciful God,
this oblation
Which we offer today
In the spirit of humility
in honour of St. John the Baptist.
Come and bless this sacrifice
prepared for your great majesty,
Which angels and archangels praise
and proclaim daily without ceasing:
You alone are holy, you alone are the Lord
Most high, Jesus Christ.
