There is none like you, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
Lord of Hosts, merciful and mighty,
We gather to you, to glorify your name.
For you are great and do wondrous things,
you alone are God.


Merciful God,
We confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done, and what we have not done
by what we have believed, and what we have loved.
We have not loved you or admired you above all.
We trust in fleeting words instead of your unbreakable Word.
In your abundant mercy forgive us O Lord.
Cleanse us and renew us,
Give eyes to see and a heart to cherish—Christ in all the Word,
that we may see your face, delight in your will,
and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name.
Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

While it is true that we have sinned,
it is a greater truth that we are forgiven
through God’s mighty love in Christ Jesus.
To all who humbly seek the mercy of God I say, in Jesus Christ your sin is forgiven!

All: Thanks be to God!

Now to him who by the power at work within us
is able to accomplish abundantly far more
than all we can ask or imagine,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
