The Invocation

The Confession Of Sins (Spoken By Congregation)

C: Lord, to Thee I make confession; I have sinned and gone astray. 
I have multiplied transgression, Chosen for myself my way. 
Led by Thee to see my errors,  Lord, I tremble at Thy terrors.

Yet, Thy Son did suffer for me,  Gave Himself to rescue me,
Died to heal me and restore me,  Reconciled and set me free.
Jesus’ cross alone can vanquish  My dark fears & soothe my anguish.

Lord, on Thee I cast my burden,  Sink it in the deepest sea!
Let me know Thy gracious pardon, Cleanse me from iniquity.
Let Thy Spirit leave me never;  Make me only Thine forever.

God’s Absolution By His Called Servant (Assurance Of Forgiveness)

The Scripture Reading – 2 Corinthians 5: 14-21

Christ died and rose again for all, that all sinners might be both reconciled to God by Christ and also become His ambassadors who share in the ministry of proclaiming the Gospel of reconciliation.

The Apostles Creed (Page 12 in Hymnal)

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.
