R Have mercy on your people, Lord!
+ For all the times we serve ourselves instead of serving You: R
+ May we learn to love You in the sick, the suffering and sorrowful: R
+ For all the times we remain comfortable and complacent while complaining and making our lives more complex: R
+ May we come to know You in the poor, the uneducated and the unloved: R
+ For all the times when we seek after things that bring no life, but drowsiness and death: R
+ May we love You in the unwanted, the widow, the migrant and the refugee: R
+ For all the times we have genuine need, may we find You in our community of faith: R
