In Pity and Mercy, Forgive

O God,
eternal Light,
Splendor of the stars,
Clearness of the night,
boundless Enlightener of the darkness,
grant us to pass this night in security and peace,
and if we have this day collected any stain of sin,
in pity and mercy, forgive.
Hear our prayers and grant our request;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
