Page 33 - ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father; We have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep : We have followed too much, the devices and desires of our own hearts : We have offended against thy holy laws : We have left undone those things which we ought to have done ; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health ia us.
Page 42 - Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent ; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness ; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
