Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world...Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world...Have mercy on us.

You have redeemed us, O Lord, in your Blood...And made us a kingdom for our God.

Let us pray, --- Almighty and eternal God, you have appointed your only-begotten Son the Redeemer of the world, and willed to be appeased by his Blood. Grant we beg of you, that we may worthily adore this price of our salvation, and through its power be safeguarded from the evils of the present life, so that we may rejoice in its fruits forever in heaven. Through the same Christ our Lord.  Amen.  EWTN   CATHOLIC CULTURE.ORG

This Litany in honor of Jesus in His Most Precious Blood was drawn up by the Sacred Congregation of Rites and promulgated by Pope John XXIII on February 24, 1960. The devotion to Jesus in His most Precious Blood was first popularized by Saint Gaspar del Bufalo (1786-1837, feast Dec. 28) who founded the Missioners of the Most Precious Blood. A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who recite this litany.   CATHOLIC ONLINE
