Hymn of Lent

This is the time of return.
Return to me with all your heart,
tear your hearts and not your clothes,
return to me with all your heart.

The son returns to his Father,
“Father I have sinned against you,
I am no longer worthy to be your son.”
The son finds a merciful Father.

This is the time of return.
God is merciful and good,
slow to anger and rich in kindness,
he is moved with compassion for you.

The woman weeps on Jesus’ feet,
she wipes them with her hair,
her sins are forgiven,
for she has shown great love.

Do not remember the things past,
do not consider things of old.
I do not remember your sins.
Go in peace and sin no more.

Memory of Jesus crucified
