Sanctus, set to Isaiah vi.3 (“Holy, Holy, Holy"), is the fourth part of the Latin Mass Ordinary. In plainchant form, it became part of the liturgy during the earliest times of the Christian church and had reached full bloom by the 11th century. It can be followed immediately in its musical setting by the Benedictus, ("Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord") so that depending on time and place of composition the two are sometimes considered as one.

The words (in English) are:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Sabaoth.
Heaven and earth are full of thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
