P: Almighty and most merciful God, our heavenly Father,
Your compassion has no end; You are longsuffering, gracious and full of goodness and
truth; forgiving iniquity, transgression and sin:
C: We have sinned and done perversely;we have forsaken You and offended You;
against You, You only, have we sinned and done evil in Your sight.
P: But we beseech You, O Lord, do not remember against us our previous sins;
let Your tender mercies speedily forgive us, for we have been brought very low;
C: Help us, O God of our salvation,and purge away our sins, for the glory of Your holy name, and for the sake of Your dear Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one true God, now and forever. Amen.
