Act of Sorrow

O God of my soul,

I am sincerely sorry

for not having hitherto loved Thee.

Instead of having loved Thee,

I have, for the sake of my pleasures,

offended and despised Thine infinite goodness:

I have turned my back upon Thee;

in a word, O my God,

I have voluntarily lost Thee.

Lord, I am sorry,

from the bottom of my heart,

for all my sins.

I hate above all things the offences,

which I have committed against Thee.

I hope Thou hast already cleansed me

from the stain of sin

in the sacrament of penance,

but I desire to become still purer in Thy sight.

Vouchsafe then to wash in Thy Blood this soul,

which Thou dost wish soon to make Thy dwelling place.
