     1 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. 2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. 3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. 4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. 6 But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? 8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? 9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? 10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) 11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. 12 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.(KJV)

1. O faithful God, thanks be to Thee 
Who dost forgive iniquity. 
Thou grantest help in sin’s distress, 
And soul and body dost Thou bless. 

2. Thy servant now declares to me: 
“Thy sins are all forgiven thee. 
Depart in peace, but sin no more 
And e’er My pardoning grace adore.” 

3. O Lord, we bless Thy gracious heart, 
For Thou Thyself dost heal our smart 
Through Christ, our Savior’s precious blood, 
Which for the sake of sinners flowed. 

4. Give us Thy Spirit, peace afford 
Now and forever, gracious Lord. 
Preserve to us till life is spent 
Thy holy Word and Sacrament.
