Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

5 We confess our unfaithfulness, our pride, hypocrisy and impatience:
Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

7 For our intemperate love of worldly goods and comforts,
and our dishonesty in daily life and work:
Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

and our indifference to injustice and cruelty:
Lord, have mercy.

for prejudice and contempt toward those who differ from us:
Lord, have mercy.

and our lack of concern for those who come after us:
Lord, have mercy.

12 Restore us, Lord, and let your anger depart from us:
Lord, have mercy.

13 Accomplish in us the work of your creation:
Lord, have mercy.

14 By the cross and passion of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord:
Lord, have mercy.

15 And bring us with all your saints to the joy of his resurrection:
Lord, have mercy.
