Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.

Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
For your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my guilt, for it is great.
Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.

Through Jesus Christ our LORD, who together with you and the Spirit, is glorified forever. Amen.
