PENITENTIAL PRAYER




Thou Lord of all above,
And all below the sky,
Prostrate before Thy feet I fall,
And for Thy mercy cry.


Forgive my follies past,
The crimes which I have done,
Bid a repenting sinner live,
Through Thy incarnate Son.


Guilt, like a heavy load,
Upon my conscience lies,
To Thee I make my sorrows known,
And lift my weeping eyes.


The burden which I feel,
Thou canst only remove,
Do thou display Thy pardoning grace,
And Thy unbounded love.


One gracious look of thine
Will ease my troubled breast:
Oh let me know my sins forgiven,
And I shall then be blest.


---Alternative verses---


Forgive my follies past,
The crimes which I have done,
O, bid a contrite sinner live,
Through Thy incarnate Son.


Thou Lord of all above,
And all below the sky,
Before Thy feet I prostrate fall,
And for Thy mercy cry.


The burden which I feel,
Thou only canst remove,
Do thou display Thy pardoning grace,
And Thy unbounded love.


The burden which I feel,
Thou only canst remove,
Display, O Lord, Thy pardoning grace,
And Thy unbounded love.
