LITANY OF PENITENCE




God the Father, God the Son,
God the Spirit, Three in One,
Hear us from Thy heavenly throne,
Spare us, Holy Trinity.


Thou who leaving Crown and Throne
Camest here, an outcast lone,
That Thou mightiest save Thine own,
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


Thou with sinners wont to eat,
Who with loving Words didst greet
Mary weeping at Thy feet,
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


Thou whose sadden’d look did chide
Peter when He thrice denied,
Till with bitter tears he cried,
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


Thou Who hanging on the Tree
To the thief saidst, “Thou shalt be
To-day in paradise with me,”
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


Thou, despised, denied, refused,
And for man’s transgressions bruised,
Sinless, yet of sin accused,
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


Thou Who on the Cross didst reign,
Dying there in bitter pain,
Cleansing with Thy Blood our stain,
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


Shepherd of the straying sheep,
Comforter of them that weep,
Hear us crying from the deep,
Hear us, Holy Jesu.


That in Thy pure innocence
We may wash our souls’ offence,
And find truest penitence,
We beseech Thee, Jesu.


That we give to sin no place,
That we never quench Thy grace,
That we ever seek Thy Face,
We beseech Thee, Jesu.


That denying evil lust,
Living godly, meek, and just,
In Thee only we may trust,
We beseech Thee, Jesu.


That to sin for ever dead
We may live to Thee instead,
And the narrow pathway trad,
We beseech Thee, Jesu.


When shall end the battle sore,
When our pilgrimage is o’er,
Grant Thy peace for evermore,
We beseech Thee, Jesu.
