E merciful unto us, O Lord, for we cry unto Thee.

If Thou, Lord, shouldst mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand ? But there is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared. Show us Thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us Thy salvation. Enter not into judgment with Thy servants, for in Thy sight shall no man living be justified. We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness. We have sinned, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly, from our youth even unto this day. Our transgressions are multiplied before Thee, and our sins testify against us. But with Thee there is mercy, and plenteous redemption. Remember not the sins of our youth, nor our transgressions : according to Thy mercy remember Thou us, for Thy goodness' sake, O Lord. to hear Thy loving-kindness ; cause us to know the

way wherein we should walk. Teach us to do Thy will: for Thou art our God. Hear Thou from heaven Thy dwelling-place, and when Thoạ hearest, forgive! Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

O LORD, we do not present our supplications before

Thee for our righteousness, but for Thy great mercies. To Thee belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against Thee, neither have we obeyed Thy voice, to walk in Thy laws. We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, by departing from Thy precepts, and from Thy judgments. () Lord, righteousness belongeth unto Thee, but unto us confusion of face. Now therefore, O God, incline Thine ear, and hear; open Thine eyes, and behold. Remember not against us former iniquities : let Thy tender mercies speedily prevent us. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Thy Name; and deliver and purge away our sins, for Thy Name's sake: Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Same.


AVE mercy upon us, O God, according to Thy

loving-kindness ; according unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies, blot out our transgressions. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sin.

For we acknowledge our transgressions : against Thee, Thee only have we sinned. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within

Cast us not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy Holy Spirit from us. Restore unto us the joy of Thy salvation, and uphold us with Thy free Spirit. Then will we teach transgressors Thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto Thee. O Lord, open Thou our lips ; and our mouth shall show forth Thy praise : Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
