Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.    Psalm 19:14

Confession of Sin

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Clergy and People: 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.

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

The Invitatory and Psalter

Officiant: Lord, open thou our lips.

People: And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Leader and People

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Venite     Psalm 95:1-7

    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!


Psalm 45: 11-18, Eructavit cor meum (read responsively)

11 Hear, O daughter; consider and listen closely; *

forget your people and your father's house.

12 The king will have pleasure in your beauty; *

he is your master; therefore do him honor.

13 The people of Tyre are here with a gift; *

the rich among the people seek your favor;
