DIRECTIONS

Refrain O Lord, incline Thine ear and show Thy mercy, for we have sinned against Thee.

O King most mighty, all mankind's Redemptor,
see our eyes lifted unto Thee in weeping;
O Christ, attend us, heed our supplication. R.

2. Right hand of Godhead, keystone of the corner,
way of salvation, entrance gate of heaven,
cleanse us O Father, free from stains of sinning. R.

3. All our transgression freely now confessing,
our hearts we open, e'en the hidden places:
loving Redeemer, grant to us Thy pardon. R.

4. Humbly confess we, who have sinned against Thee, with contrite hearts we reveal things hidden; O Redeemer, may Thy pity grant forgiveness. R.

5. Led away captive, guiltless, unresisting, condemned by false witnesses unto death for sinners, Christ do Thou keep us whom Thy blood hath ransomed. R.

Attende Domine R. Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

Ad te Rex summe, omnium redemptor, oculos nostros sublevamus flentes: exaudi, Christe, supplicantum preces. R.

Dextera Patris, lapis angularis, via salutis, ianua caelestis, ablue nostri maculas delicti. R.

Rogamus, Deus, tuam maiestatem: auribus sacris gemitus exaudi: crimina nostra placidus indulge. R.

Tibi fatemur crimina admissa: contrito corde pandimus occulta: tua Redemptor, pietas ignoscat. R.

Innocens captus, nec repugnans ductus, testibus falsis pro impiis damnatus: quos redemisti, tu conserva, Christe. R.
