Litany of the Infant Jesus


Glory and praise be to Thee, O tender little Jesus. From the utmost depths of my heart I praise and adore Thee, that for love of me and of all mankind it was Thy will to lie in the manger, and to suffer such great poverty and misery. I praise and adore Thy tender limbs, and Thy tender hands and feet, and I magnify the inexpressible love which drew Thee forth from the bosom of the Heavenly Father, down to a poor and miserable stable.

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

Be merciful.
Spare us, O Infant Jesus.
Be merciful.
Graciously hear us, O Infant Jesus.

From the bondage of the children of Adam,
Deliver us, O Infant Jesus. **

From the slavery of the devil, **
From the corruption of the world. **
From the lust of the flesh, **
From the blindness of mind, **
From perversity of will, **
From our sins, **
Through Thy most pure conception, **
Through Thy humble birth, **
Through Thy tears, **
Through Thy painful circumcision, **
Through Thy glorious epiphany, **
Through Thy devout presentation, **
Through Thy most holy life, **
Through Thy poverty, **
Through Thy sorrows, **
Through Thy obedience, **
Through Thy labors, **

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Spare us, O Infant Jesus.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Infant Jesus.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us, O Infant Jesus.

Infant Jesus, hear us.
Infant Jesus, graciously hear us.

Let us pray: 

O Lord Jesus, Who didst vouchsafe so to annihilate the greatness of Thy Incarnate Divinity and most sacred Humanity, as to be born in time, and become a little child: grant that we may acknowledge infinite wisdom in the silence of a child, power in weakness, majesty in abasement; so that adoring Thy humiliations on earth, we may contemplate Thy glories in heaven. Who with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest, God, forever and ever. Amen.
