Be merciful,
Spare us, O Lord. 
Be merciful,
Graciously hear us, O Lord.

From the neglect of Thy commandments, 
Deliver us, O Lord. **

From the transgression of our vows, ** 
From uncleanness of mind and body, ** 
From the spirit of fornication, **
From a proud and sad spirit, **
From the snares of the devil, **
From overwhelming temptation, **
From the disorder of our passions, **
From the blindness of self-love, **
From the obstinacy of self-will, **
From an evil and unprovided death, **
Through the wonderful conversion of St. Norbert, **
Through his austere penance, **
Through his ardent zeal in preaching, **
Through his exemplary life, **
Through all his virtues, **
Through his holy death, **
Through his wonderful translation, **
Through his glorious crown in Heaven, **
Through his merits and intercession, **

We sinners: Beseech Thee, hear us.
That Thou wouldst grant us true sorrow and contrition of heart,
We beseech Thee, hear us. ***

That Thou wouldst bestow upon us perfect mortification of our senses and of our own will, ***
That Thou wouldst grant us a true conversion of life, *** 
That Thou wouldst make faith, hope and charity to grow in us, ***
That Thou wouldst grant us the gift of prayer, ***
That Thou wouldst bestow upon us the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost, *** 
That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to govern and preserve Thy Holy Church, *** 
That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to extend and preserve the Premonstratensian Order, *** 
That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to strengthen the Abbot-General and all the Abbots of the Order with perfect spirit, ***
That Thou wouldst vouchsafe to grant us the crown of perseverance, *** 
That Thou wouldst give grace to the living and to the departed eternal rest, ***

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Spare us, O Lord. 

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Graciously hear us, O Lord. 

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Have mercy on us.

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

Our Father (secretly).

V. And lead us not into temptation.
R. But deliver us from evil.
V. Pray for us, O holy Father Norbert:
R. That we may be made zvorthy of the promises of Christ.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer:
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
V. The Lord be with you:
R. And with thy spirit.

Let us pray:

O God, Who didst make of blessed Norbert, Thy Confessor and Bishop, an excellent preacher of the Word, and by his means didst enrich Thy Church with new offspring: grant, we beseech Thee, that through his intercession we may put in practice by Thy grace what he taught us, both in word and work. Through Christ Our Lord. R. Amen.

Awake, O Lord, in Thy Church the Spirit by Whom St. Norbert, Thy Confessor and Bishop was guided, in order that, filled with the same Spirit, we may love what he loved and live as he taught us.

O Lord, grant to us Thy servant's constancy in Thy faith and service, that, rooted in Divine charity, we may not be conquered by any temptation. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen. Praised by Jesus Christ. Amen.
