Ash Wednesday

“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

With broken heart and contrite sigh,
A trembling sinner, Lord, I cry.
Thy pard’ning grace is rich and free—
O God, be merciful to me!

And when, redeemed from sin and hell,
With all the ransomed throng I dwell,
My raptured song shall ever be:
God has been merciful to me.

“With Broken Heart and Contrite Sigh” (The Lutheran Hymnal #323, st. 1 & 5)
