I will confess my sins,
and the sins of my fathers,
for I have transgressed ‑\and neglected
Thee, O Lord,
and walked perversely before Thee.
Set not, O Lord, set not my misdeeds
before Thee,
nor my life in the light of Thy
But pardon the iniquity of Thy servant,
according to Thy great mercy;
as Thou hast been merciful to him from
a child,
even so now.
I have sinned, what shall I do unto
O Thou preserver of men?
Why hast Thou set me as a mark
against Thee,
so that I am a burden to myself?
O pardon my transgression,
and take away mine iniquity.
Deliver me from going down to the pit,
for Thou hast found a ransom.
53Have mercy on me, Son of David,
Lord, help me.
Yea, Lord, even the dogs eat of the
which fall from their masters’ table.
Have patience with me, Lord,
yet I have not wherewith to pay,
I confess to Thee;
forgive me the whole debt,
I beseech Thee.
How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord?
for ever?
How long wilt Thou hide Thy face
from me?
How long shall I seek counsel in my soul,
and be vexed in my heart day and night?
How long shall mine enemies triumph
over me?
Consider and hear me, O Lord my God,
lighten mine eyes that I sleep not
in death,
lest mine enemy say I have prevailed
against him,
for if I be cast down, they that trouble
me will rejoice at it;
but my trust is in Thy mercy.
