From Isaiah 64

Sovereign Lord, we have continually sinned against you; and have become unclean:
all our righteous acts are like filthy rags.

We shrivel up like leaves:
our sins sweep us away.

Yet, O Lord, you are our Father:
do not remember our sins for ever.

We are your people:
look upon us, we pray, and forgive us;
through Jesus our redeemer. Amen.
