Lost and Found

You know all my sins and the stain of my sins on my life.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,

 and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Purify me with the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ, 

wash me and I’ll be whiter than snow.

O loving and kind God have mercy on me.  

Have pity upon me and take away the awful stains. 

O God wash me and cleanse me from my guilt 

and let me be pure again.

Show me your ways, Lord,

Show me your paths.

Lead me in Truth and teach me. You are the God of salvation.

On you I wait all the day long.

O Lord, give me your tender mercies and the loving kindness for they will sustain me.   

My feet stand on level ground and in the great assembly, I will bless the Lord

The Lord is my light and my salvation and whom shall I fear.  The Lord is the stronghold of my life and whom shall I fear. 

Thank you God – We shout for joy to you!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.
