you are the high King in heaven above.
Our thoughts and motives,
our words and actions,
cannot be hidden from your sight.
Our pride and self-pity,
our cowardice and sloth,
our anger and envy,
all of these are laid bare before your eyes.
We open ourselves to you and humbly ask for your forgiveness.
Do not look upon our wrongdoing,
but cover us in the sinlessness of Christ.
Reassure us that his blood is our peace, his death is our life,
his resurrection is your promise of the world to come,
and let our hearts know that your service is perfect freedom.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
