Sarum Litany


O Lord almighty, Father unbegotten, on us miserable sinners,
have mercy.

O Lord, who redeemed the work of your hands by your only Son,
have mercy.

O Lord, Adonai, blot out our offences, and on your people
have mercy.

O Christ, brightness of the Father’s glory, and the express image of his person,
have mercy.

O Christ, who saved the world at the command of the Father,
have mercy.

O Christ, Savior of all, eternal life of angels,
have mercy.

O Lord, Spirit, the Comforter, Dispenser of pardon,
have mercy.

O Lord, fountain of mercy and of seven-fold grace,
have mercy.

O Lord, most pitiful forgiver, proceeding from both,
have mercy.

O most bountiful Giver of gifts, Teacher, Giver of life, in your goodness,
have mercy.
