God of mercy and compassion,
look with pity upon me; Father, let me
call thee Father, ’tis thy child returns to thee.
Jesus, Lord, I ask for mercy; let me not
implore in vain; all my sins I now detest them,
never will I sin again.
By my sins, I have deserved death and endless
misery, hell with all its pain and torments,
and for all eternity.
