Opening Prayers/Prayers of Adoration on Repentance
Now the careful words of repentance
Must be said for me.
He from whom I hope for the robe of immortality
And the ring of immortality
And the ring of dignity,
Who for my arrival slays
The fattened calf from the herd,
Whose blood restored
The structure of the whole world,
And whose blood in the figure of a lamb
Sprinkled and painted on thresholds,
By whom the hand of Didymus is pressed in
And the house of Rahab the harlot is saved.
