Provided to me by a friend of mine:

Almighty and most merciful Conductor, We have erred and strayed from thy beat like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the intonations and tempi of our own hearts; 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 them that need extra note bashing, spare thou them that are without pencil,

Pardon our mistakes and have faith that hereafter we will follow thy direction and sing together imperfect harmony…… 

say no more…..
