O Lord Jesus Christ,
be merciful to us for your name’s sake.
When we wander from you,
bring us back,
wash away the sins that we have committed,
and set us, whom you have redeemed
at your right hand when you come to be our judge;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
