In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

SING: (kneeling)

                        O salutaris hostia
                        Quae coeli pandis ostium,
                        Bella premunt hostilia,
                        Da robur, fer auxilium.

                        Uni trinoque Domino
                        Sit sempiterna gloria.
                        Qui vitam sine termino
                        Nobis donet in patria.  Amen.


PRAYER TO SANTO NIÑO

 O Señor Santo Niño, *You are our king and our God, *We worship You, You are our strong Defender, *We turn to You; You are the Patron of Cebu and the Philippines, *We come to you;*You have made extraordinary wonders *through Your Miraculous Image*in these chosen Islands, *remember us.  Look down at this poor soul *that comes to  You  for help.  Lead us with Your wisdom, *discipline us with Your Truth, console us with Your Tenderness, *protect us with Your Might.

We consecrate today *our thoughts to You, *only with You *shall they be occupied; *our words, *only of You *shall they speak; *our sufferings, that wemay endure them *for your sake.  We beg You, *Señor Santo Niño, *illumine our understanding, kindle our will, *cleanse our body, *sanctify our soul.  *We wish what you wish, *because You wish, *as You wish, *as long as You wish.

Grant us, Señor Santo Niño, *that we may feel *love toward You, *be stricttoward ourselves, *be zealous toward our fellowmen, *and rightly despise *the things of the world.  Help us *to overcome sensuality *with strict discipline,*avariciousness with generosity, *anger with gentleness, *indolence with zealous
industry. *Make us wise in counsel, *courageous in danger, *patient in adversity, *humble in prosperity.

Teach us, *dear Santo Niño, *how worthless is the world, *how sublime is heaven, *how brief is time, *how long is eternity.  *Grant us, lastly, that we may remember You, *adore You, *love You, and serve You *here on earth *that we may be happy with You *forever and ever in Heaven.  Amen.

  
SING: (standing)


                        Holy God, we praise Your name.
                        Lord of all!  We bow before You;
                        All on earth Your scepter claim,
                        All in heaven above adore You;
                        Infinite Your vast domain,
                        Everlasting is Your reign.

                        Hark! The loud celestial hymn,
                        Angels choirs above are raising;
                        Cherubim and Seraphim
                        In unceasing chorus praising,
                        Fill the Heav’ns with sweet accord
                        Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!


  Recite three times Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be to the Father in honor of  Santo Niño.      

  (Ask Señor Santo Niño the favor you want to obtain in this Novena.)

VERSE 1
One day to these Islands *As gift and in pledge *God sent You to us *O beloved Child *And always You have been *The light of our souls *The guide of our people

*The flame in our hearts.

            (Refrain):

                        Señor Santo Niño, with Your scepter
                        Guide our people who hail You king
                        Forever, Filipinas is Your kingdom.

                        Señor Santo Niño, in Your hand
                        The world finds its rest; proclaim Your
                        Truth and justice, bring to men Your
                        Peace and love.

VERSE 2
The ship you were sailing *Arrived at our shores *to conquer this land, *The Pearl of the seas; *But You had decided *to stay in this soil *To conquer our people *And give us a name.

VERSE 3
The queen and the rajah, *Accepting the faith, *Received You in their arms *and fell on their knees; *They welcomed Your presence *And called on Your name *To ask for Your blessing *and help in their needs.

VERSE 4
More ships in the Orient *With soldiers arrived; *And searching for gold, *They found You instead; *Legaspi, Urdaneta, the rajah, the queen, *Their subjects, our people, *Proclaimed You their king.

VERSE 5

Now one as a nation *We pay You respect *Our people did pledge *A long time ago.
*We ask You to hear *The prayers of all: *The sad and forsaken, *The poor and the sick.

 

 

CONCLUDING PRAYER

O miraculous Santo Niño! *prostrate before Your sacred Image, *we beseech You*to cast a merciful look *on our troubled hearts.  *Let Your tender love, *so inclinedto pity, *be softened at our prayers, *and grant us that grace *for which we ardently implore You.  *Take from us *all unbearable affliction and despair.  *For Your sacred infancy’s sake *hear our prayers *and send us consolation and aid *that we may praise You, *with the Father and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever.  Amen.
