I worship you, O Lord God, for you are gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love. You are patient, always ready to relent from sending the punishment I deserve. I praise you for your steadfast love and abundant mercy and thank you that you have blotted out my transgressionsO God of my salvation, I sing aloud of your righteousnessFor you made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise (Joel 2:13; Psalm 51:1, 14-15; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
