O, Lord God, gracious and merciful, give us I entreat thee, a humble trust in us, thy mercy and suffer not our heart to fail us, though our sins be seventy times seven. Though our sins be more in number than the hairs of our head. Give us grace in loving penitence to cast ourselves down into the depth of thy compassion. Let us fall into your hands O Lord our God. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
