Hear our prayer, O Lord our God,
Give ear unto our supplications.
Enter not into judgment with Thy people, O Lord,
For in Thy sight can no man living be justified.
O Lord, we have sinned against Thee,
Our sins are exceeding great,
And have reached unto the very heavens,
And cry for vengeance.
Yet for Thy mercy's sake,
Hear our prayer, O Lord,
Give ear unto our supplications.
