For reconciliation.
With fear and trembling
do I approach Thee.
O God,
I have sinned before Thee
through my own fault,
my own great fault,
and I am ashamed.
Thou, in Thy justice, hast punished me,
for my soul is aching within me,
and I dare not look upon Thee.
Awaken in my heart gratitude
for the pain Thou hast laid upon me.
O wash me clean,
blot out my sin;
for if Thou markest iniquity, O Lord,
who could stand?
I remember, Father,
before whom now I speak,
and I feel Thy gentle mercy.
Thy spirit comes unto me,
and Thou givest me hope.
Thou whisperest unto me:
“Thou art my witness.” (Isaiah 43:10)
I will arise and do Thy work.
I was tired and weak.
Let me drink of Thy love
and be refreshed.
Remove the veil that I have made,
and let me come very close unto Thee.
For with Thee alone is peace.
Keep me near to Thee,
so that I may be strong.
Merciful Father,
I am Thy child,
and in weakness have I sinned.
Let me go hence,
led only by Thy light and Thy love,
and shield me with Thy presence
when temptations arise before me.
For Thy justice and Thy mercy
I give thanks unto Thee.
