Turn away, O Lord, the fierceness of your wrath, and in pity spare your people,
Grant a favorable and speedy answer to the prayers of all,
O Christ, look on our hardships, free us from the bonds of death, and grant us life,
See our tears–hear our sighs, and now, at last, in pity, forgive our sins,
Though none of us are worthy to be heard, O Christ, for your own sake help us,
have mercy. Amen.
