For Pardon

O God,
Son of God,
so loving, yet hated,
so patient, yet assaulted and killed,
you showed yourself gentle and merciful
even to your persecutors.
You have atoned for our sins
through the wounds of your Passion.
As you humbled yourself and suffered death for us,
now, in your glory,
shine on us with the eternal brightness of your grace.
