Said in unison:

O Judge and Redeemer, we come before you, shorn of all pretense and without cause for pride.  We care more about bread than our confession of Christ our Savior.  We worship many gods and do not serve you alone.  We offer bribes to garner your favor; we do not rely on your promised goodwill.  Forgive our deceit and grant us forgiveness.  Through Christ we repent our sinful ways.
