Have mercy upon us, O God, according to thy loving-kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out our transgressions.

Create in us clean hearts, O God; and renew a right spirit within us. Cast us not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from us.For the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
