Forgive Me My Sins

Forgive me my sins, O Lord,
forgive me the sins of my youth
and the sins of my age,
the sins of my soul,
and the sins of my body,
my secret and my whispering sins,
my overconfident and my crying sins,
the sins that I have done to please myself,
and the sins that I have done to please others.
Forgive me those sins which I know,
and those sins which I do not know;
forgive them, O Lord,
forgive them all of your great goodness. Amen.
