I'm sorry
I’ve insulted you
You, who bear in you
the image of our God
Forgive

that I have abused you
and have laughed at your cost
and done a thing not mine to do
and …

Please forgive me
I was wrong
 
I'm sorry
I’ve insulted You
You, Who share in us
the image of Yourself
Forgive

that I have abused You
and have laughed at Your hand
and claimed a thing not mine to own
and …

Please forgive me
I am wrong

 

This isn’t an apology for pointing out error
but for laughing at it, on finding it in others
and for the insult that such laughter is to God.
