Carol Communion: Confession and Absolution

Confession and Absolution
Tune: Nun Komm, Der Heiden Heiland
77 77

Let us now confess our sins
Unto Him who wipes them clean
Let us solemnly confide
In our Lord, the Cleansing Tide.

   Father dear, I too have strayed
   And oft I do what Thou forbade.
   Grant that all my sins and vice
   Shall be cleansed and made snow white.

Christian brothers, sisters dear,
Christ our Lord says, “Have no fear.”
He has washed away your shame.
I forgive you + in His Name.
