Confession and Absolution

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor. 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

Venite 

Come, let us sing to the Lord; * 
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation. 
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, * 
and a great King above all gods. 
In his hand are the caverns of the earth, * 
and the heights of the hills are his also. 
The sea is his, for he made it, * 
and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, * 
and kneel before the Lord our Maker. 
For he is our God, 
and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. *
Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

The Third Song of Isaiah

Arise, shine, for your light has come, *
and the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you.
For behold, darkness covers the land; *
deep gloom enshrouds the peoples.
But over you the Lord will rise, *
and his glory will appear upon you.
Nations will stream to your light, *
and kings to the brightness of your dawning.
Your gates will always be open; *
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of the Lord, *
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
Violence will no more be heard in your land, *
ruin or destruction within your borders.
You will call your walls, Salvation, *
and all your portals, Praise.
The sun will no more be your light by day; *
by night you will not need the brightness of the moon.
The Lord will be your everlasting light, *
and your God will be your glory.

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 
creator of heaven and earth; 
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit 
and born of the Virgin Mary. 
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, 
was crucified, died, and was buried.

He ascended into heaven, 
and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 
He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Spirit, 
the holy catholic Church, 
the communion of saints, 
the forgiveness of sins
the resurrection of the body, 
and the life everlasting. Amen.

for ever and ever. Amen.
