Have mercy on us.

O Holy Trinity, three Persons and one God,
Have mercy on us.

O Lord, have mercy on us.

Christ have mercy on us, and pardon our sins.
Through Thy inflamed desire to redeem mankind,
Have mercy on us.

Through Thy humility in washing, as on this day, the feet of Thy disciples, and even those of the traitor Judas,

Have mercy on us.

Through Thy ineffable love, manifested, as on this day, in the institution of the Communion of Thy most precious body and blood,

Have mercy on us.

Through the prayer Thou didst, as on this day, thrice repeat in the garden of Olives, when in Thy most bitter agony Thou didst sweat great drops of blood falling to the ground,

Have mercy on us.

Through the blows, buffets, and opprobrious usage, which Thou the God of Heaven didst endure the night before Thy crucifixion,

Spare us, we beseech Thee, and deliver us, O Lord.
From all irreligion, from the neglect, &c.

Then continue with the usual Litany, &c. (page 72), to the end of the Thursday Evening Prayers, adding after the Lord's Prayer the following Collect:

Collect for Maunday Thursday.

CHRIST, God over all blessed for ever, who didst endure to be treacherously betrayed by wicked Judas, who didst adjudge him the punishment of his guilt, but didst also award the penitent thief the reward of his confession; grant us, we beseech Thee, the effects of Thy mercy, that as in Thy passion Thou gavest to each different retribution according to their deserts, so Thou wouldst take from us our old errors, and grant us the grace of Thy resurrection; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
