1 John 1:8–9 (Listen)
8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Isaiah 64:6 (Listen)
6 We have all become like one who is unclean,
and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.
We all fade like a leaf,
and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
Psalm 103:12 (Listen)
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
Hymn: TLH 358, st. 1-3 :
Lamb of God, We Fall Before Three
1. Lamb of God, we fall before Thee,
Humbly trusting in Thy Cross.
That alone be all our glory;
All things else are only dross.
2. Thee we own a perfect Savior,
Only Source of all that’s good.
Every grace and every favor
Comes to us through Jesus’ blood.
3. Jesus gives us true repentance
By His Spirit sent from heaven;
Whispers this transporting sentence,
“Son, thy sins are all forgiven.”
