I, N. N., who through the tender mercy of the Eternal Father
was privileged to be baptized "in the name of the Lord
Jesus" [Acts 19, 5]

and of his only-begotten Son
to renew in all sincerity

Who was born into this world
and Who suffered and died for my sins and rose again.

and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
