Remember man: dust indeed you are
And it is to dust you shall return.
- Let us rend our hearts not our garments
and return to the Lord our God
For gracious and merciful is He!
- Spare Your people O Lord
Give heed to the cry of your priest
Do not silence those who sing Your praises.
- Let us mend our ways for the better
and hasten the time of repentance
For the day of the Lord is near!
- Listen to our prayer have mercy
On the people you claim for Your own
The people who sinned against You
- O God our Saviour help us
Forgive us our sins O Lord
For the sake of the glory of Your name!
- Give glory to the Father almighty,
To His Son Jesus Christ our Lord
To the Spirit who dwells in our hearts.
