    LEADER: I Praise Thee, O God, for all Thy blessings, which Thou hast given me.
    All: Although unworthy, I pray Thee, /
    that Thou mayest be pleased /
    to give me that devotion and love for Thee, /
    Grant me all things that are helpful to my life, /
    and pleasing to Thy divinity. /
    Conduct me according to Thy good pleasure, /
    and fulfill in me Thy good will always. /
    O Jesus Christ, our Lord, /
    I confess that I am a grievous sinner, /
    who hast sinned before Thee, more than all men. /
    I implore Thee for the remission of my sins O God;
    since Thou art merciful, pardon me everything /
    that I have done wickedly against Thee. /
    I have been detested by all men, /
    from my birth until now. /
    Forgive all those who have done wrongs to me. /
    O Lord, Thou showest kindness, /
    and art an ocean of mercy. /
    Reckon Thou my sins as a mere drop of mud, /
    in the sea of Thy mercy; /
    or a drop of mud cannot make a vast ocean muddy.
    O God, have mercy upon me, /
    according to Thy loving kindness and /
    blot out all my sins /
    according to the abundance of Thy grace. /
    Cleanse me from my defilements, /
    and purge me from my sins; /
    for I acknowledge my transgressions, /
    and my sins are ever before me. /
    O Jesus Christ, our Lord, /
    deliver me from the torments of hell; /
    from the unquenchable fire, /
    and the undying worms, prepared for me, /
    and for those that are wicked and sinful like me. /
    Though undeserving, make me worthy of /
    that supreme joy in the other world, /
    prepared for Thy loving friends, /
    which neither the eyes have seen, /
    nor the ears heard, not the heart has conceived. /
    Since Thy mercy can forgive /
    iniquities by thousands and thousands /
    and by ten thousands and ten thousands; /
    and Thou hast in no time, /
    justified publicans and the harlots, /
    forgive my sins by Thy grace. /
    O Lord, I beseech Thee by the love of Thy Father,
    and by the good will of Thy Holy spirit. /
    Pardon my great sins, and my grievous faults, /
    by the prayers of Thy angels, and of all Thy Saints.
    O Lord, Jesus Christ, O Creator, /
    since Thou protectest and savest us, /
    praise and worship are due to Thee /
    and to Thy Father, who sent Thee for our salvation, and to Thy Holy Spirit, now and always, forever.
    Amen.
