Daily Prayer - Humbled and Penitent

Behold me at Your feet, O Jesus of Nazareth, 
behold the most wretched of creatures, 
who comes into Your presence humbled and penitent! 
Have mercy on me, O Lord, 
according to Your great mercy!
I have sinned and my sins are always before You. 
Yet my soul belongs to You, 
for You have created it, 
and redeemed it with Your Precious Blood. 
Ah, grant that Your redeeming work be not in vain! 
Have pity on me; 
give me tears of true repentance; 
pardon me for I am Your child; 
pardon me as You pardoned the penitent thief; 
look upon me from Your throne in heaven 
and give me Your blessing.
