Then may the Minister say the Confession of Sins as here followeth. The Congregation standing until the end of the Kyrie, or the Minister may omit all until the end of the Kyrie, at his discretion.

The Confession of Sins.

DEARLY Beloved: If we say that we

have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and

the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Let us therefore confess our sins unto God our heavenly Father, and humbly beseech Him, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to grant us forgiveness.

Let us pray.

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father:

we poor sinners acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, have committed, by thought, word, and deed, against Thy Divine Majesty. We have provoked Thy wrath and indignation against us, and deserve at Thy hands the punishment due to the guilty. But we do earnestly repent and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings; and we beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to have mercy upon us. Pardon and deliver us from all our sins; confirm and strengthen us in all goodness; and bring us to everlasting life; for the sake of Thy dear Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

ORD, have mercy upon us! Christ, have mercy upon us. Lord, have mercy upon us!

O God the Son, Redeemer of the world; have mercy upon us!

O God the Holy Ghost; have mercy upon

us, and grant us Thy peace! Amen.

WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel, shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper; The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil; He shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in, from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Or this:

Bonum est Confiteri. Psalın xcii.

Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute; upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.

For Thou, Lord, hast made me glad, through Thy works, and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of Thy hands.
