From the slavery of the children of Adam, **

From the slavery of the devil, **

From the evil desires of the flesh, **

From the malice of the world, **

From the pride of life, **

From the inordinate desire of knowing, **

From blindness of spirit, **

From an evil will, **

From our sins, **

Through Thy most pure Conception, **

Through Thy most humble Nativity, **

Through Thy tears, **

Through Thy most painful Circumcision, **

Through Thy most glorious Epiphany, **

Through Thy most pious Presentation, **

Through Thy most divine life, **

Through Thy poverty, **

Through Thy many sufferings, **

Through Thy labors and travels, **

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

* Have mercy on us.

** Infant Jesus, deliver us.

Let us pray

O Lord Christ, Thou wert pleased so to humble Thyself in Thine 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, and majesty in humiliation. Adoring Thy humiliations on earth, may we contemplate Thy glories in Heaven, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest forever. Amen.
