* Prelude

* Psalm 32

P: Blessed is he whose transgression `is forgiven/ whose `sin is covered.

C: Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute `iniquity / And in whose spirit there `is no deceit.

P: When `I kept silent / My bones grew old through my groaning ` all the day long.

C: For day and night Your hand was heav`y upon me/ My vitality was turned into the `drought of summer.

P: I acknowledged my sin to You / And my iniquity I ‘have not hidden;

I said “I will confess my trangres`sions to the Lord / And You forgave the iniquity `of my  s-in.

All: Glory be to the Father `and to the Son/ And to `the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the be`ginning, is now/And ever shall be, forever`more. A-men.

Scripture

Joel 2:12-14 “Now, therefore,” says the LORD, “Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm. Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him— a grain offering and a drink offering for the LORD your God?
