Forgive us our debts

AND you, being dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, you, [I say], did he make alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses; having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us: and he hath taken it out that way, nailing it to the cross; having despoiled the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Colossians 2:13-15 (ASV).


OUR Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. Amen.


AT the piercing of thy side, O thou who art abundant in mercy, our forefather Adam’s age-long bond of debt is torn up, and by the drops of thy blood the rejected nature of men is cleansed, crying out: Glory to thy tender pity, glory to thy crucifixion all-powerful Jesus, Saviour of our souls.
