Pastor: This the hour of transformation every one of us needs. And so we confess, here in the presence of a Loving God
We have been blind—Now we would regain our sight.
We have been asleep—We need to awaken.
We have been in exile—We desire to return.
We have been empty—We seek to be filled.
We have sinned—We seek forgiveness?
Our hearts have closed. Would you open them?
We have forgotten how to find You,
But would You remember to find us?
