The Sanctus

The Sanctus is part of the Eucharistic prayer in the Mass Ordinary. It is frequently paired with the first verses of the Te Deum. Like Gloria and the Agnus Dei, Sanctus is originally a Latin prayer. It is an acclamation to praise the Lord, taken from the Book of Isaiah, the Book of Revelations, and Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem in the Gospel of Matthew. 

The Sanctus in Latin

“Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus

Dominus Deus Sabaoth

Pleni sunt coeli et terra

Gloria tua

Hosanna in excelsis

Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini

Hosanna in excelsis”

The Sanctus in English

“Holy, holy, holy, 

Lord, God of power and might. 

Heaven and earth are filled with Your glory. 

Hosanna in the highest.

 Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. 

Hosanna to God in the highest”
