For our insensitivity to your creation,
For vandalism and violence,
For crassness and carelessness,
Forgive us, O Lord.

For hardness and hatred,
For cruelty and callousness,
Forgive us, O Lord

For baseness and blindness,
For rebellion and ruthlessness,
Forgive us, O Lord.

For greed and gracelessness,
For indifference and ignorance,
Forgive us, O Lord.

For disrespect and drabness,
For lack of sense and laziness,
Forgive us, O Lord.

Grace and goodness,
Love and liveliness,
Give us, O Lord.

Calm and carefulness,
Generosity and goodness,
Give us, O Lord.
