“Call onto Me and I will answer you.’

We have called onto You, O Lord.
So forgive us in accordance with Your command.

For You do not break your promises.

Our Lord, truly we have heard the caller calling us to faith:
‘Believe in your Lord.’
And, ‘O Lord, we have believed.
Then forgive us our trespasses and rid us of our iniquities.
Let us be called hence with the righteous.

to You we have returned.
Yours is the ordering.

Forgive us, O Lord,
and our brethren who have preceded us in the faith.

Let there be no ill will towards those who have believed.
For You are kindly and merciful.
O Lord, Make our light complete and forgive us.

You art powerful over all things.
I take refuge with You.

Our Lord (glorified and exalted be Hu)
descends each night to the earth’s sky
when there remains the final third of the night, and Hu says:
“Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it?
Who is asking something of Me that I may give it her?
Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?”
