A Prayer for True Repentance and Pardon
Behold me at Thy feet, O Jesus of Nazareth,
behold the most wretched of creatures,
who comes into Thy presence humbled and penitent!
Have mercy on me, O Lord,

pardon me as Thou didst pardon the penitent thief;
look upon me from Thy throne in heaven
and give me Thy blessing.
I believe in God...
