The Almighty God will have mercy upon us, who has sent his Son into the world for us as a sure pledge. He was sacrificed as an innocent Lamb, bore our sin, and made satisfaction for it. He who believes in this, our Lord Jesus Christ, will have forgiveness of his sin and eternal life. If you have this faith, I absolve you of all sins by the power of such faith. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
