A Lenten Psalm and Litany

Litany for Lent

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 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 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.

God of love, as in Jesus Christ
you gave yourself to us,
so we may give ourselves to you,
living according to your holy will.
Keep our feet firmly in the way where Christ leads us;
make our mouths speak the truth that Christ teaches us;
fill our bodies with the life that is Christ within us.
In his holy name we pray.  Amen.
— Presbyterian Book of Common Worship
