Attende Domine (Hearken O Lord)

R. Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against Thee.
Crying, we raise our eyes to Thee, Sovereign King, Redeemer of all. Listen, Christ, to the pleas of the supplicant sinners. R.
Thou art at the Right Hand of God the Father, the Keystone, the Way of salvation and Gate of Heaven, cleanse the stains of our sins. R.
O God, we beseech Thy majesty to hear our groans; to forgive our sins. R.
We confess to Thee our consented sins; we declare our hidden sins with contrite heart; in Thy mercy, O Redeemer, forgive them. R.
Thou wert captured, being innocent; brought about without resistance, condemned by impious men with false witnesses. O Christ keep safe those whom Thou hast redeemed. R.

An interesting discussion about the virtue of fasting and abstinence can be found here, which was a holy given at a Traditional Mass in the USA.
