35 THE SONG OF MANASSEH
Domine omnipotens

Refrain: Full of compassion and mercy and love*
is God, the Most High, the Almighty.
1 O Lord Almighty and God of our forebears,*
you who made heaven and earth in all their glory:
2 All things tremble with awe at your presence,*
before your great and mighty power.
3 Immeasurable and unsearchable is your promise of mercy,*
for you are God, Most High.
4 You are full of compassion and very merciful,*
and you relent at human suffering.
5 O God, according to your great goodness,*
you have promised repentance and forgiveness
   to those who have sinned against you.
6 The sins I have committed against you,*
are more in number than the sands of the sea.
7 I am not worthy to look up and see the heavens,*
because of my many sins and iniquities.
8 And now my heart bows before you,*
imploring your kindness upon me.
9 I have sinned, O God, I have sinned,*
and I acknowledge my transgressions.
10 Unworthy as I am, I know that you will save me,*
according to your great mercy.
11 For all the host of heaven sings your praise,*
and your glory is for ever and ever.
Glory . . . Manasseh 1a, 4, 6-7, 9a, 9c, 11-12, 14b, 15b
Full of compassion and mercy and love*
is God, the Most High, the Almighty.
