A Psalm by David ~ Psalms 32:1-7
“Happy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered over.
Happy is the man whom the Lord does not hold guilty, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
As long as I said nothing, my limbs wasted away from my anguished roaring all day long.
For night and day Your hand lay heavy on me; my vigor waned as in the summer drought.
Then I acknowledged my sin to You; I did not cover up my guilt; I resolved, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ and You forgave the guilt of my sin.
Therefore let every faithful man pray to You upon discovering his sin, that the rushing mighty waters not overtake him.
You are my shelter; You preserve me from distress; You surround me with the joyous shouts of deliverance.”
