Create in Me a Clean Heart
Music by John F. Wilson
Lyrics from Psalm 51

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit in me.
Cast me not away from Thy presence
and take not Thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of salvation,
and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors Thy way,
and the sinner shall convert to Thee.

Have mercy upon me, O God,
according to Thy lovingkindness.
By the multitude of Thy tender mercies
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me throughly from iniquities;
cleanse me from my sin.
O Lord open Thou my lips
and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise.

Make me to hear joy and gladness,
that the broken bones may rejoice.
Hide Thy face from my sins,
and blot out mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit in me.
