Words of Assurance
887  Psalm 103:8-12, Jerusalem
Yahweh is tender and compassionate,
slow to anger, most loving; ...
he never treats us, never punishes us,
as our guilt and our sins deserve.
No less than the height of heaven over earth
is the greatness of his love
for those who fear him;
he takes our sins farther away
than the east is from the west.
