Kyrie: Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.
Gloria: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will. We praise thee. We bless thee. We adore thee. We glorify thee. We give thee thanks for thy great glory, O Lord God, heavenly King. God the Father almighty. O Lord, the only begotten son Jesus Christ. O Lord God, Lamb of god, Son of the Father. Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayers. Who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For thou only art holy. Thou only art Lord. Thou only, O Jesus Christ, art most high. With the Holy Ghost, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Credo: I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages; God of God, light of light, true God of true God; begotten not made; being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made. Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven; and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost, of the Virgin Mary; and was made man. He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven. He sitteth at the right hand of the Father, and he shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; and his kingdom shall have no end. And [I believe] in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified; who spoke by the Prophets. And [in] one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I await the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Sanctus: Holy, holy. holy, Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
Agnus Dei: Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

Introitus: Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord:
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
To You we owe our hymn of praise, O God, in Sion; (Psalm 65: 1-2)
To You must vows be fulfilled in Jerusalem.
Hear my prayer, to you all flesh must come.
Kyrie: Lord, have mercy. (3 times)
Christ, have mercy. (3 times)
Lord, have mercy. (3 times)
Graduale: Though I walk through the valley of
the shadow of death
I fear no evil; for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23: 4)
Tractus: As a heart longs for flowing streams,
so longs my soul for Thee, O God.
My soul thirsts for the living God:
when shall I come and behold the face of my God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
while men say to me continually,
“Where is your God?” (Psalm 42: 1-3)
Offertorium: Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory,
deliver the souls of all the faithful departed
from the pains of hell and the deep pit;
deliver them from the lion’s mouth,
may hell not swallow them up,
nor may they fall into darkness
But may Michael, the holy standard-bearer,
bring them into the holy light:
Which You once promised to Abraham and to his seed.
