Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy,
and save your people
whom you bought with your own blood.
Do not turn away from us because of our sins.
Remember us according to your steadfast love,
and your gracious work for your people.
Deliver us that may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones,
and share in the joy of your nation
and join your inheritance in giving praise.
