Perpetual Novena

In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

O salutaris Hostia,
Quae caeli psantoninoandis ostium:
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.

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

O Senor Santo Nino, 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 those 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 of you, only with you shall they be occupied; our words only of you shall they speak; our sufferings that we may endure them for your sake. We beg you Senor Santo Nino, 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, Senor Santo Nino that we may feel love towards you, be strict towards ourselves be zealous towards 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 Nino, 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


Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.
Jesus, hear us.
Jesus, graciously hear us.

In every need let us come to you with humble trust.

*** R. Santo Nino, help us.
In our all doubts, perplexities and temptations, ***
In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials, ***
In the failure of our plans and hopes ***
In disappointments, troubles and sorrows ***
When others fail us, and Your Grace alone can assist us ***
When we throw ourselves on your tender love as our only refuge ***
When we are ill and our head and hands cannot work and we are lonely. ***
When we feel impatient and our cross irritates us. ***
Always, always, in spite of weaknesses, failings and shortcomings of every kind.***

Lamb of God, who take away the sins of the world:
Spare us. O Jesus.
Lamb of God who take away the sins of te world:
Graciously hear us, O Jesus
Lamb of God who take away the sins of the world:
have mercy upon us, O Jesus.
Jesus, hear us.
Jesus, Graciously hear us.

O Santo Nino, who has said, “ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you,” Give we beseech you, to us who ask the gift of your divine love, that we may love you with our whole heart, in word and work, and never cease from showing forth your praise.

Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear and love of Your Holy Name, for you never fail to govern them whom you solidly establish in Your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Santo Nino Hymn

Verse 1
One day to these Islands, as gift and in pledge; God sent you to us, Oh beloved Child; And always you have been, the light of our souls; The guide of our people, the flame in our hearts.

Senor Santo Nino, with your scepter guide our people, Who hail you king forever; the World is your Kingdom. Senor Santo Nino, in Your hands the world find its rest; Proclaim your truth and justice, bring to us 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 our soil; To conquer our people, and give us a name. (Repeat Chorus)

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 blessings, and help in their needs.

(Repeat Chorus)
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.
(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 5
Now one as nation, we pay You respect, Our people had pledged, a long time ago; We ask You to hear the prayers of all; The sad and forsaken, the poor and the sick.



O miraculous Santo Nino prostrate before your sacred Image, we beseech you to cast a merciful look on our troubled hearts. Let Your tender love, so inclined to 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.



Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum  documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Præstet fides  supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.
