O Salutaris Hostia
Quae coeli pandis ostium
Bella premunt hostilia
Da robur fer auxilium

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


Tantum ergo Sacramentum
  Veneremur cernui
Et antiquum documentum
novo cedat ritui
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensum defectui

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.
Amen
Tantum Ergo
V. Panem de coelo praestitisti eis.
R. Omne delectamentum in se habentem.
Oremus:
Deus, qui nobis sub sacramento mirabili,
passionis tuae memoriam reliquisti
tribue, quaesumus, ita nos corporis et sanguinis
tui sacra mysteria venerari ut redemptionis tuae
fructum in nobis jugiter sentiaus Qui vivis et regnas Deus per  omnia saecula saeculorum
Amen
The Priest Incenses the Blessed Sacrament
The Celebrant puts on the humeral veil, blesses the people, silently making over them the sign of the cross with the monstrance in which the Sacred Host is enshrined
An Act of Reparation for Profane Language
Blessed be God.
Blessed be His holy Name
Blessed be Jesus Christ True God and True Man
Blessed be the Name of Jesus
Blessed be His Most Sacred Heart
Blessed be His Most Precious Blood
Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy  Sacrament of the Altar
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete
Blessed be the great Mother of God  Mary most Holy
Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception
Blessed be her Glorious Assumption
Blessed be the Name of Mary Virgin and Mother
Blessed be St. Joseph her most Chaste Spouse
Blessed be God in His Angels and In his Saints
The Blessed Sacrament Is put back in the Tabernacle and the Service ends.
Closing Hymn  Holy God We Praise Thy Name
The Celebrant says each line and thePeople Repeat
O Saving Victim opening wide
The gates of heav'n to man below!
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.

To Thy great name be endless praise
Immortal Godhead, One in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee. Amen

Down in adoration falling,
Lo, the sacred Host we hail;
Lo, o'er ancient forms departing
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying
Where the feeble senses fail.

To the everlasting Father,
And the Son who reigns on high,
With the Holy Spirit proceeding
Forth from each eternally
Be salvation, honor, blessing,
Might, and endless majesty. Amen

V.  You have given them bread from heaven 
R.  Having all sweetness within it
Let us pray.

Lord Jesus Christ, you gave us the Eucharist
as the memorial of your suffering and death.
May our worship of this sacrament of your body
and blood help us to experience the salvation you
won for us and the peace of the kingdom where you
live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
R. Amen.


Holy God We Praise Thy Name
Lord of All We bow before Thee.
All on earth Thy scepter claim
All in heav'n above adore Thee
Infinite Thy vast domain Everlasting  is Thy reign
Infinite Thy vast domain Everlasting  is Thy reign

Hark! the loud celestial hymn
Angel choirs above are raising!
Cherubim and Seraphim
In unceasing chorus praising
Fill the heav'ns with sweet accord  Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord
Fill the heav'ns with sweet accord  Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord

The Sacred Host is Enshrined in the Monstrance For Adoration
Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is a Rite in which Jesus in the Sacrament of his love is not only exposed to the adoration of the faithful, but in which he, present in that Sacrament, is implored to bless the faithful present before the Altar.  It is not so much the priest who blesses the people by this Rite, as it is Jesus Christ Himself, in the Blessed Sacrament, who bestows His benediction upon them.

The Priest vested in surplice, stole, and cope, goes up to the Altar, and opening the Tabernacle, he makes a Genuflection and taking out a consecrated Host enclosed in a kind of locket, called a luna, places this in the center of the Monstrance --a stand of Gold or silver, with rays like the sun. The choir sings the O Salutaris Hostia .

The Priest then descends to the foot of the altar, and puts incense in the censer; kneeling again, he receives the censer from the hand of the acolyte, and incenses the Adorable Host.  When the choir sings the second line of the Tantum Ergo, all bow humbly down, and then during the Genitori, the Priest again incenses the Blessed Sacrament.

As soon as the choir has ended the hymn the Priest chants the Versicle; and after the Response he chants the Prayer of the Blessed Sacrament. He then kneels again, and the humeral veil is placed around his shoulders, after which he ascends again to the Altar, and, making a genuflection, takes the monstrance, and , turning to the people, gives the Blessing in silence, making the sign of the Cross over the kneeling congregation.
Then  he decends  the Divine Praises are said and other Prayers may be said at this time. 
The Priest goes to the altar and replaces the Host in the Tabernacle, he descends
the altar and the closing hymns is sung.  Usually Holy God We Praise Thy Name.
