O Lamb of God Who takest away the sins of the world, hear my groaning and attend to the sorrows of my heart; take away my heavy burden of sin, O Thou who hast borne our infirmities; receive me who fall down before Thee in repentance, praying and crying out from the depth of my soul: O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
O God and Lord! The creation is Thine, but woe to me: The sin committed by Adam in paradise lives in me and in my body, and like a slave am I always fervently serving it, but now I entreat Thee:
Have mercy on me, O Creator of the world above.
Have mercy on me, O Maker of the world below.
Have mercy on me, O Master of the Heavenly Powers.
Have mercy on me, O Ruler of bodily creatures.
Have mercy on me, O Provider of all things.
Have mercy on me who bring Thee my tears for my sins.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
