Kind Maker of the world, O hear the fervent prayer, with many a tear
Poured forth by all the penitent who keep this holy fast of Lent!

Each heart is manifest to Thee; thou knowest our infirmity;
Now we repent and seek Thy face; grant unto us Thy pardoning grace.

Spare us, O Lord, who now confess our sins and all our wickedness,
And, for the glory of Thy Name, our weakened souls to health reclaim.

Give us the discipline that springs from abstinence in outward things
With inward fasting, so that we in heart and soul may dwell with Thee.

Grant, O Thou blessed Trinity, grant, O unchanging Unity,
That this our fast of forty days may work our profit and Thy praise!
