My soul and body are defiled by so many sinful deeds
causing misery to others and shame to myself.
and my body is a playground of selfish indulgence.
you could only condemn me to eternal torment,
for that is what I deserve.
not as a judge, but as a savior.
but on your mercy.
I ask that your eyes be filled with compassion and forgiveness.
I beg you to renew within me a spirit of holiness.
