Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

ANTHEM: Everywhere I Go Junior Choir
Ev’rywhere I go, the Lord is near me, If I call upon Him, He will hear me, Never will I fear, for the Lord is near ev’rywhere I go.
In the dark of night should things alarm me, Ever in His sight, no ill may harm me, I will be of cheer for the Lord is near, ev’rywhere I go.
He is with me day by day, He will be my strength and stay; From His path I will not stray but follow in His way.
In the coming days of joy or sadness I will praise His name with songs of gladness, For to me it’s clear that the Lord is near ev’rywhere I go.
(For to me it’s clear that the Lord is near ev’rywhere I go.)
Ev’rywhere God is there, Tending all with loving care, He is near me ev’rywhere I go.
Dark of night, morning light, I am ever in His sight; He will keep me safe from harm I know.
Day by day my strength and stay, I will follow in His way.
All my days I will raise to His name glad songs of praise, For the Lord is ev’rywhere I go. For the Lord is ev’rywhere I go.
