Father, whose love we have wronged

1. Father, Whose love
we have wronged by transgression,
Christ, Who wast nailed
for our sins on the tree,
Spirit, Who givest
the grace of repentance;
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

2. Jesu, adorable Savior of sinners,
Author of penitence,
Hope of our souls,
Plentiful Fountain of grace
and compassion;
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

3. Thou Who didst empty
Thyself of Thy glory,
Thou Who Thy parents
on earth didst obey,
Thou Who for our sake
enduredst temptation,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

4. Thou Who hast shown us
the love of the Father,
Meeting with mercy the prodigal son,
Sonship and home
to the lost one restoring,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

5. Jesu, Who once
by the well to the sinner
Clearly the sins
of her heart did reveal,
Leading her gently
to faith and repentance,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

6. Thou Who didst enter
the house of Zaccheus,
Blessing his faith
and accepting his love,
When for wrongdoing
he made restitution,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

7. Christ, with the Twelve
the last Passover keeping,
Ere on the cross the
true Lamb should be slain,
Sacrifice offered for all and for ever,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

8. Jesu, alone with the
blood-sweat upon Thee,
Jesu, in agony
bowed to the earth,
Jesu, Thy will to
the Father resigning,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

9. Jesu, from Annas
to Caiaphas hurried,
Blindfolded, stricken,
and falsely accused,
Rudely blasphemed,
and declared a blasphemer,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

10. Jesu, denied by
Thine eager Apostle,
Whom with a look
Thou didst straightway recall,
Moving him straightway
to tears and contrition;
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

11. Thou Who wast wounded
to heal our transgression,
Lifted on high
to draw all men to Thee,
There on the cross
in Thy majesty reigning,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

12. That Thou wouldst draw us
to heartfelt contrition,
That Thou wouldst help us
our sins to confess,
That Thou wouldst grant us
the grace of amendment,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.

13. That we may bring forth
works meet for repentance,
That we give place
to the devil no more,
That Thou wouldst lead us
to sure perseverance,
Hear us, we pray Thee, good Lord.
