Yom Kippur Prayers in English?

Does Anyone know a Yom Kippur Prayer in english?
I need a to find a prayer that is traditionally recited during Yom Kippur but it has to be in English. For example, what is the prayer on Yom Kippur that you are supposed to say before and after lighting the candles?

The singular prayer of Yom Kippur is the "Al Chet", a recitation of a formal list of sins and omissions. It is said aloud, in unison, so that nobody need know which sins any individual is actually atoning for, and also as an expression of *group* responsibility for the sins of the individuals.

Also, after the candles are lit the Shehecheyanu is recited : "Baruch atah adonai eloheinu melech ha'olam shecheyanu v'kiy'manu v'higyanu lazman hazeh"
Translation - Blessed are you L-rd, our G-d ruler of the world, who sanctified us through His commandments and commanded us to kindle the lights of Yom Kippur.
