<font color=red>P. </font> Ye who do truly and earnestly repent you of your sins, and are in love and charity with your neighbors, and intend to lead a new life, following the commandments of God, and walking from henceforth in his holy ways; Draw near with faith, and take this holy Sacrament to your comfort; and make your humble confession to Almighty God, devoutly kneeling.
<font color=red>R. </font> ALMIGHTY GOD, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, maker of all things, judge of all men; We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, <br> which we, from time to time, most grievously have committed, <br> By thought, word, and deed, against thy Divine Majesty, <br> Provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us. <br> We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings; <br> the remembrance of them is grievous unto us; the burden of them is intolerable. <br> Have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; <br> For thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ's sake, forgive us all that is past; <br> and grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please thee in newness of life. <br> To the honor and glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
<font color=red>P. </font> Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who of His great mercy hath promised forgiveness of sins to all those who with hearty repentance and true faith turn unto him; have mercy upon you; pardon and deliver you from all your sins; confirm and strengthen you in all goodness; and bring you to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
