Preface 15 - Sacred Heart

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: First Part - The Holy Eucharist - Rite Two - Prefaces for Seasons.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; who willed that your only-begotten Son, hanging on the cross, should be pierced by the spear of a soldier; that his Heart, manifest as the shrine of your heavenly bounty, might pour out for us floods of grace and of compassion: and that, since it has never ceased to burn for us with ardent longing, it might be the resting place of those that love you, and the ever open refuge of safety for the penitent.

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

Celebrant and People:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
