Almighty and most merciful Conductor

We have erred and strayed from thy beat like lost sheep
We have followed too much the intonations and tempii of our own hearts
We have offended against thy dynamic markings
We have left unsung those notes which we ought to have sung
And we have sung those notes which we ought not to have sung
And there is no support in us
But thou, O Conductor, have mercy upon us miserable singers
Succour the chorally challenged
Restore thou those that need extended rehearsals
Spare thou those that carry rehearsal pencils
Pardon our mistakes and have faith
That hereafter we will follow thy directions all the days of our lives
And sing together in perfect harmony
