Make haste to open unto me

Thy fatherly embrace,

for as the Prodigal I have wasted my life.

In the unfailing wealth of Thy mercy,

O Saviour,

reject not my heart in its poverty.

For with compunction

I cry to Thee, O Lord:

Father, I have sinned against heaven

and before Thee.

-- from  the canon for the Prodigal Son
