A verse translation. It's as nearly literal as I could make it; enjoy!
O merciful Creator, hear
The prayers we offer tearfully,
Poured out as we, these forty days,
Fast and abstain repentantly.
O thou who readest every heart,
Thou knowest all our strength is vain;
Grant then the grace of pardon to
The souls who turn to thee again.
Much we have sinned, indeed, but still
Have mercy on our sins confessed
And for the glory of thy name
Give fainting souls thy healing blest.
Grant us our flesh to wear away
Beneath the burden of our fast
That thus our guilty, sinning hearts
Their load of crime away may cast.
Grant us, O blessed Trinity,
And simple Unity, concede
In this thy fast of forty days,
May many fruits from it proceed.
