O bury my sins in the ocean of Jesus' blood
and let no evil result from my fretful temper,
unseemly behavior, provoking pettiness.
O give me repentance unto life;
Cement my oneness with my blessed Lord,
that faith may adhere to him more immovably,
that love may entwine itself round him more tightly,
that his Spirit may pervade every fibre of my being.
Then send me out to make him known to my fellow-men.
