O everlasting God, who dost forgive and pass by our sins, and in whose promise to show mercy to the needy we put all our hope of escaping the evil day, have compassion, we pray Thee, on our sorrows; so that while Thou gently concealest our casual faults, Thou mayest graciously give us the pardon of our souls; through our Lord Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

(psalm prayer for Psalm 41, Brotherhood Prayer Book, p.193)
