Lyrics (Psalm 32:1-2, 5, 7, 11):
Response: Lord, forgive the wrong I have done.
Blessed is the one whose fault is taken away,
whose sin is covered.
Blessed the man to whom the LORD imputes not guilt,
in whose spirit there is no guile. Response
I acknowledged my sin to you,
my guilt I covered not.
I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”
and you took away the guilt of my sin. Response
You are my shelter; from distress you will preserve me;
with glad cries of freedom you will ring me round. Response
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you just;
exult, all you upright of heart. Response
