A Prayer for Mercy (Saint Jerome)

Loutzenhiser's picture

O Lord
show your mercy to me
and gladden my heart.Spacer
I am like the man
on the way to Jericho
who was overtaken by robbers,
and left for dead:
O Good Samaritan,
come to my aid.Spacer
I am like the sheep
that went astray:
O Good Shepherd,
seek me out and bring me home
in accord with your will.
Let me dwell in your house
all the days of my life
and praise you forever and ever.

- Saint Jerome, 342 - 420
