Your love covers the multitude of my sins.
So when I am fully aware of my sin,
when before the justice of Heaven only wrath is pronounced upon me,
then you are the only person to whom I can escape.
If I try to cover myself against the guilt of sin
and the wrath of Heaven,
I will be driven to madness and despair.
But if I rely on you to cover my sins,
I shall find peace and joy.
You suffered and died on the cross to shelter us from our guilt,
and take upon yourself the wrath that we deserve.
Let me rest under you,
and may you transform me into your likeness.
