My wounds are foul and festering,
the result of my own folly.
I am bowed and brought to my knees,
I go mourning all the day long.
I cry aloud in anguish of heart.
my groans are not hidden from you.
My heart throbs, my strength is spent;
the very light has gone from my eyes.
And my lying foes are many.
They repay me evil for good
and attack me for seeking what is right.
My God, do not stay afar off!
Make haste and come to my help,
O Lord, my God, my savior!
through the obedience of Jesus,
your servant and your Son,
you raised a fallen world.
Free us from sin
and bring us the joy that lasts forever.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
one God, for ever and ever.
