I have sinned against You, Christ our Savior, like the prodigal son. Father, accept me in repentance. Have mercy on me, O God.
I cry to You, Christ our Savior, with the voice of the publican. Be merciful to me, as to him. Have mercy on me, O God.
When I think of my detestable and horrible deeds, I fly for refuge to Your compassion, imitating the publican, the weeping harlot and the prodigal son. So I fall before You, Merciful One: Before You condemn me, my God rather spare me and have mercy on me!
Overlook my transgressions, Lord born of the Virgin. Cleanse my heart, making it a temple of the Holy Spirit! Do not make me as nothing before Your face, since You have boundless mercy!
