"Act of Contrition" is a song off Madonna's fourth studio album Like a Prayer.


This song is the mystery song of the album. It starts with Madonna whispering prayers. Then a guitar solo begins while you hear samples of Like A Prayer playing backwards. All that interlaced with the lyrics printed on the left.


The song features a backwards version of "Like a Prayer".


For thou art the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory
Forever and ever. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy...

Oh my God, I am heartily sorry
For having offended Thee
And I detest all my sins
Because of Thy just punishment
But most of all
Because I have offended Thee, Oh my God
Who art all good and deserving of all my love
I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace
To confess my sins, to do penance, to amend my life,
And to avoid the temptations of evil

Oh my God
I am heartily sorry
For having offended Thee
And I detest
All my sins
Because of Thy
Just punishment
But most of all
Because my God
I have offended Thee
Who art all good
Like I knew you would
And deserving of all
My love
I reserve
I reserve
I reserve
I reserve
I resolve
I have a reservation
I have a reservation!
