a litany for Lent

Let us pray:

O Christ

out of your fullness we have all received grace upon grace.
You are our eternal hope;
you are patient and full of mercy;
you are generous to all who call upon you.

Save us, Lord. 

O Christ, fountain of life and holiness,
you have taken away our sins.
On the cross you were wounded for our transgressions
and were bruised for our iniquities.

Save us, Lord. 

O Christ, obedient unto death,
source of all comfort,
our life and our resurrection,
our peace and reconciliation:

Save us, Lord. 

O Christ, Savior of all who trust you,
hope of all who die for you,
and joy of all the saints:

Save us, Lord. 

Jesus, Lamb of God,

have mercy on us. 

Jesus, bearer of our sins,

have mercy on us. 

Jesus, redeemer of the world,

grant us peace.
