In der Passionszeit

Herr, gedenke nicht unsrer Übelthaten, und
erbarme dich unseres Elends.
Herr, der du unser Heiland bist, stehe uns bei,
erlöse uns und vergieb uns unsere Sünden um der
Herrlichkeit deines Names willen.

At Passiontide

Lord, remember not our wrongdoings, and have
mercy on us in our affliction.
Lord, who are our saviour, help us, redeem us and
pardon our sins, for the sake of your glorious name.
