Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 8-10, 12-13

Compassionate Forgiveness

R. The Lord is compassionate and gracious.

Bless the Lord, my soul;
all my being, bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, my soul;
and do not forget all his gifts,

R. The Lord is compassionate and gracious.

Who pardons all your sins,
and heals all your ills,
Who redeems your life from the pit,
and crowns you with mercy and compassion,

R. The Lord is compassionate and gracious.

Merciful and gracious is the Lord,
slow to anger, abounding in mercy.
He will not always accuse,
and nurses no lasting anger;
He has not dealt with us as our sins merit,
nor requited us as our wrongs deserve.

R. The Lord is compassionate and gracious.

As far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our sins from us.
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.

R. The Lord is compassionate and gracious.
