Confession of Sin (together); BCP Page 41

Let us humbly confess our sins unto Almighty God.

Officiant and People together Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep, we have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts, we have offended against thy holy laws, we have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.

But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, spare thou those who confess their faults, restore thou those who are penitent, according to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord; and grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, to the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

The Leader The Almighty and merciful Lord grant us absolution and remission of all our sins, true repentance, amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of his Holy Spirit. Amen.

Alleluia. The Lord is risen indeed: O come, let us adore him. Alleluia.

Venite Psalm 95:1-7 (together)

O come, let us sing unto the Lord; *     let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *     and show ourselves glad in him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God, *     and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the corners of the earth, *     and the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it, *     and his hands prepared the dry land.

O come, let us worship and fall down, *     and kneel before the Lord our Maker. For he is the Lord our God, *     and we are the people of his pasture     and the sheep of his hand.

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; *     let the whole earth stand in awe of him. For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth, *     and with righteousness to judge the world     and the peoples with his truth.

Jubilate     Psalm 100 (together)

Be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands; *     serve the Lord with gladness     and come before his presence with a song.

Be ye sure that the Lord he is God; it is he that hath made us and not we ourselves; *     we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.

O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise; *     be thankful unto hi
