Lord, Almighty God of our fathers,
and Jacob,
and of their righteous seed;
who hast made heaven and earth,
with all the ornament thereof;
who hast bound the sea by the word of thy commandment;
who hast shut up the deep,
and sealed it by thy terrible and glorious name;
whom all men fear,
and tremble before thy power;
for the majesty of thy glory cannot be borne,
and thine angry threatening toward sinners is importable:
but thy merciful promise is unmeasurable and unsearchable;
for thou art the most high Lord,
of great compassion,
very merciful,
and repentest of the evils of men.

O Lord,
according to thy great goodness hast promised repentance and forgiveness to them that have sinned against thee:
and of thine infinite mercies hast appointed repentance unto sinners,
that they may be saved.

Thou therefore,
O Lord,
that art the God of the just,
hast not appointed repentance to the just,
as to Abraham,
and Isaac,
and Jacob,
which have not sinned against thee;
but thou hast appointed repentance unto me that am a sinner:
for I have sinned above the number of the sands of the sea.

My transgressions,
O Lord,
are multiplied:
my transgressions are multiplied,
and I am not worthy to behold and see the height of heaven for the multitude of mine iniquities.

I am bowed down with many iron bands,
that I cannot life up mine head,
neither have any release:
for I have provoked thy wrath,
and done evil before thee:
I did not thy will,
neither kept I thy commandments:
I have set up abominations,
and have multiplied offences.

Now therefore I bow the knee of mine heart,
beseeching thee of grace.

I have sinned,
O Lord,
I have sinned,
and I acknowledge mine iniquities:
I humbly beseech thee,
forgive me,
O Lord,
forgive me,
and destroy me not with mine iniquites.

Be not angry with me for ever,
by reserving evil for me;
neither condemn me to the lower parts of the earth.

For thou art the God,
even the God of them that repent;
and in me thou wilt shew all thy goodness:
for thou wilt save me,
that am unworthy,
according to thy great mercy.

Therefore I will praise thee for ever all the days of my life:
for all the powers of the heavens do praise thee,
and thine is the glory for ever and ever.
