Opening Hymn LSB 811 : Oh, That I Had a Thousand Voices link “Oh, That I had A Thousand Voices”

The Invocation And Confession Of Sins

C: O living God and Lord, I come before you as a creature before his Creator, acknowledging Your greatness and glory and my complete dependence upon You. I also approach You as a sinner before his holy God, aware and repentant for my many sins and failings which righty deserve Your just anger and punishment. Yet for the sake of Your dear Son, my Savior Jesus, I come before You in humble repentance and faith. Have mercy on Me – forgive me, renew me and strengthen me for Your Name’s sake. Amen.

The Absolution

Our Profession Of Faith
(First Article Of The Apostles Creed With Luther’s Explanation)

C: I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. I believe that God made me and every creature, and that He gave me my body and soul, eyes, ears and all my members, my mind and all my abilities.

And I believe that God still preserves me by richly and daily providing clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, wife and children, land, cattle, and all I own, and all that I need to keep my body and life, and by defending me against all danger and guarding and protecting me from all evil.

All this God does only because he is my good and merciful Father in heaven, and not because I have earned or deserved it.

For all this I ought to thank and praise, to serve and obey Him.

This is most certainly true.
