Triodion Hymns of Repentance (sung at Sunday Matins through the 5th Sunday of Lent):
Open to me the doors of repentance, O Life-giver, for my spirit rises early to pray towards Thy holy Temple, bearing the temple of my body all defiled; but in Thy compassion, purify me by the loving-kindness of Thy mercy.
Lead me on the paths of salvation, O Mother of God, for I have profaned my soul with shameful sins and have wasted my life in laziness. But by your intercessions, deliver me from all impurity.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to Thy great mercy, and according to the multitude of Thy compassions, blot out my transgressions.
When I think of the many evil things I have done, wretch that I am, I tremble at the fearful day of judgment. But trusting in Thy loving-kindness, like David I cry to Thee: “Have mercy on me, O God; have mercy on me, O God; have mercy on me, O God, according to Thy great mercy.”
