Call to Worship
Leader: Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
All: You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.
– Psalm 51.1-4, 6, 8-10 (NRSV)
