Picture of Psalm 51: Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God (David praying in a window of his royal palace at night)

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

H · G · S  Have mercy upon me
2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

H · G · S  
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

H · G · S  
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

H · G · S  have I sinned R304
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

H · G · S  conceive
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

H · G · S  
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

H · G · S  hyssop
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

H · G · S  
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

H · G · S  
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

H · G · S  Create in me
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

H · G · S  thy holy spirit
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

H · G · S  Restore unto me
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

H · G · S  
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

H · G · S  
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

H · G · S  
16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

H · G · S  
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

H · G · S  
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

H · G · S  
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar. H · G · S
