Advent: First Sunday of Advent
- Psalms 25:1-1025
1To you, O LORD, I offer my prayer;
2in you, my God, I trust.
Save me from the shame of defeat;
don't let my enemies gloat over me!
3Defeat does not come to those who trust in you,
but to those who are quick to rebel against you.
4Teach me your ways, O LORD;
make them known to me.
5Teach me to live according to your truth,
for you are my God, who saves me.
I always trust in you.
6Remember, O LORD, your kindness and constant love
which you have shown from long ago.
7Forgive the sins and errors of my youth.
In your constant love and goodness,
remember me, LORD!
8Because the LORD is righteous and good,
he teaches sinners the path they should follow.
9He leads the humble in the right way
and teaches them his will.
10With faithfulness and love he leads
all who keep his covenant and obey his commands.
