lyrics

Litany of Penitence

Most holy and merciful Father:
We confess to you and to one another,
and to the whole communion of saints
in heaven and on earth,
that we have sinned by our own fault
in thought, word, and deed;
by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart, mind, and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We have not forgiven others, as we have been forgiven.

Lord have Mercy

We have been deaf to your call to serve, as Christ served us.
We have not been true to the mind of Christ.
We have grieved your Holy Spirit.

Lord have Mercy
We confess to you, Lord, all our past unfaithfulness:
the pride, hypocrisy, and impatience of our lives,

Lord have Mercy

Our self-indulgent appetites and ways,
and our exploitation of other people,

Lord have Mercy

Our anger at our own frustration,
and our envy of those more fortunate than ourselves,

Lord have Mercy

Our intemperate love of worldly goods and comforts,
and our dishonesty in daily life and work,

Lord have Mercy

Restore us, good Lord, and let your anger depart from us;
Favorably hear us, for your mercy is great.

Accomplish in us the work of your salvation,
That we may show forth your glory in the world.

By the cross and passion of your Son our Lord,
Bring us with all your saints to the joy of his resurrection.
