A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

O Holy LORD,* Who forgiving sins, dost give blessedness to them that confess Thee, hear the prayer of Thy present family, and having destroyed the sting of sin, bedew us with spiritual exultation. Through (1.)

We have sinned,* O LORD, we confess, like prodigal sons; we dare not look up to heaven: for it was thence we fell and became wretched. We have sinned against heaven and before Thee, and we are not worthy to be called Thy sons, we denounce ourselves, we need neither accusers nor witnesses, we have iniquity triumphing over us, we have evil conversation condemning us. Merciful FATHER, Only-begotten SON, HOLY GHOST, receive us penitent, and have mercy on us.

Forgive,* O LORD, the impiety of our hearts, for which every one that is godly shall make his prayer unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found; and give us understanding according as we pray, and guide us in the way in which we go. Amen. Through Thy mercy (11.)

[O GOD,* from Whom the privy things of the heart are not hid, from Whom the secrets of the conscience are not concealed, forgive, we beseech Thee, our unrighteousness, and blot out all our sins, that Thou mayest win our souls by pardoning our offences, and possess them by covering our misdeeds. And since Thou art our Joy, redeem us by Thy pity, and in redeeming, deliver us from the plagues which remain for the ungodly. (11.)

We humbly beseech Thee,* O LORD, to cover our sins by pardon, and to impute our misdeeds no more, that we may become sharers in the everlasting gladness of the saints. (1.)

O LORD JESU CHRIST, (D. C.) Wisdom of GOD the FATHER, give us understanding, and inform us with Thy precepts, guide us with Thine eye in the way we go, that under Thy leading we may surely come to Thee, Who art the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (5.)]
