The Lord Forgives

Happy those whose offence is forgiven,

whose sin is remitted.

O happy those to whom the Lord

imputes no guilt,

in whose spirit is no guile.

I kept it secret and my frame was wasted.

I groaned all day long,

for night and day your hand was heavy upon me.

Indeed my strength was dried up

as by the summer's heat.

But now I have acknowledged my sins;

my guilt I did not hide, I said:

"I will confess my offence to the Lord."

And you, Lord, have forgiven

the guilt of my sin.

So let faithful men and women pray to you

in the time of need.

The floods of water may reach high

but they shall stand secure.

You are my hiding place, O Lord;

you save me from distress.

Rejoice, rejoice in the lord,

exult, you just!

O come, ring out your joy.

all you upright of heart.
