Bring our repentance

Nineveh, the trading vessel that is suffering shipwreck and has despaired of all life, cry out and ask the deliverer of all to extend his right hand to you; for I who govern you am not heard, for the errors of all appear only in me. Therefore, cry out; perhaps he is persuaded by your prayers and he bends all the more to your tears. Weep, O bride, weep, O young men, weep, youth together with virgin, old men and infants, in the presence of the Lord, let us bring our repentance.1
