The chanting of the Solemn Prayer for the Jews

The Text Ordered by the Pope

Oremus et pro Iudaeis.
Ut Deus et Dominus noster illuminet corda eorum,
ut agnoscant Iesum Christum salvatorem omnium hominum.
Flectamus genua.
Omnipotens sempiterne Deus,
qui vis ut omnes homines salvi fiant et ad agnitionem veritatis veniant,
concede propitius,
ut plenitudine gentium in Ecclesiam Tuam intrante omnis Israel salvus fiat.
Per Christum Dominum nostrum.
An unofficial translation of the prayer is:

Let us pray, and also for the Jews.
May our God and Lord enlighten their hearts,
so that they may acknowledge Jesus Christ, saviour of all men.
Let us pray.
Let us kneel.
Almighty and everlasting God,
who desirest that all men be saved and come to the knowledge of truth,
mercifully grant that,
as the fullness of the Gentiles enters into Thy Church, all Israel may be saved.
Through Christ Our Lord.
