Lord, how long wilt Thou be angry?
Shall Thy jealousy burn like fire forever?

Pour out thy indignation upon the heathen
and upon the kingdoms which have not called upon thy name.
For they have devoured Jacob
and laid waste his dwelling place.

O remember not our old sins
but have mercy upon us
for we are come to great misery.

Help us, O God of our salvation,
for the glory of thy name.
O deliver us and be merciful unto our sins,
for thy name’s sake.
