Act Of Contrition
Forgive me my sins, O Lord,
Forgive me my sins;
The sins of my youth,
The sins of my age,
The sins of my soul,
The sins of my body;
My idle sins,
My serious voluntary sins;
The sins I know,
The sins I do not know;
The sins I have concealed for so long,
And which are now hidden from my memory.
I am truly sorry for every sin, mortal and venial,
For all the sins of my childhood up to the present hour.
I know my sins have wounded Thy Tender Heart,
O My Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil through
The most bitter Passion of My Redeemer.
O My Jesus, forget and forgive what I have been.
